This Chemical Helps You to Avoid Unwanted Thoughts

Many a time, you sit on your bed, thinking about the annual day and your dance performance that you are planning. However, all of a sudden an unwanted thought of your pending homework comes in between and ruins your beautiful imagination. Now, scientists have actually found out something that can help you to get rid of this annoying situation. Recently a group of scientists has discovered a chemical in the brain that helps us to hold back unpleasant and unwanted memories.

The scientists stated that this finding will be helpful for the patients suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression or schizophrenia who experience persistent intrusive thoughts.

The researchers also added that there is a region at the front of the brain known as the prefrontal cortex. This part of our brain is known to play a key role in controlling our actions.  The prefrontal cortex region of the brain has more recently been shown to play a similarly important role in stopping the thoughts, stated the scientists.
