New molecules reverse memory loss linked to depression, aging

Being a person who’s experienced depression and the unavoidable ravages of time, I personally would be elated if this panned out as an actual treatment. I inherited a less-than-perfect memory from my mother, and the possibility that I could take a medication to improve upon it is exciting.

It makes me curious about the effects, would they universally improve recall, or would certain periods of time in our lives come rushing back?

What time of your life would you be excited to have perfect recall of again?
