For my read, the story is less that MIT CURES PHEAR! and more that, heh – slashdot picked up a kinase related press release – then proceeded to mangle it. 😦 Nobody tell Derek.

In our study, we employ mice to show that extinction of learned fear depends on counteracting components of a molecular pathway involving the protein kinase Cdk5

    After reading the piece, I would love to “facilitate extinction” of the dunces who wrote it.

    If they can cure my-project-is-clueless fear, then they’ve really got something. Of course, as that post pointed out, many people cure that particular fear by being clueless themselves. . .
