A safe and effective ‘miracle cure’ was successfully tested on mice

You will own nothing and be happy.

Long-lasting happiness will be ensured by injecting your brain with graphene oxide.

Don’t worry, it will be safe and effective: the Frankensteins from Graphene Flagship partners SISSA in Italy, ICN2 in Spain, and the University of Manchester in the UK, in collaboration with the Ribeirão Preto Medical School of the University of São Paulo, have successfully tested a ‘miracle cure’ on mice.

Laura Ballerini, lead author of the paper and Professor of Physiology at Graphene Flagship partner SISSA, Italy, explains that graphene oxide disables communication between the synapses that cause this type of fear.

Two days after injecting graphene oxide into a specific region of the mouse’s brain, it behaved like other mice that had never experienced the smell of a cat in their home environment. In other words, graphene oxide inhibited the mouse’s anxiety-related behavior,” Ballerini explains. She says that two days is roughly the time for memories to form and be consolidated in the mouse’s brain, which corresponds to the time for the symptoms of anxiety to subside.

Graphene oxide interacts with the part of the brain responsible for the formation of fear-related memories, which cause anxiety. It doesn’t work like a drug, by inhibiting the function of the receptors – instead, it temporarily halts the entire mechanism long enough to disrupt the brain’s fear-related pathology, without damaging them,” continues Ballerini.

Graphene oxide interrupts anxiety-related neuron signals without affecting the neurons, or the surrounding cells. In simple terms, it only ‘turns down’ the communications between specific neurons. In a disease where these communications are over-expressed, like PTSD and anxiety, targeting the synapses with graphene oxide is enough to halt the development of this pathological behavior. This is a type of precision medicine.” Continue reading
