Old news. Still cool though. The PTSD study has implications for me personally, and I think if they made it safe enough for a human trial I'd be down. Being able to sit in the same room as a gun without collapsing into a pile of shaking fear and hysterical tears would be nice, especially with no medication involved.

/yeah, don't ask me why growing a light-detecting molecule on a brain neuron strikes me as less dangerous than pumping my body full of chemicals. I'm not claiming it makes sense, just my own personal comfort level I guess.
