Summary

New series. Neuroscientist Paul Howard-Jones investigates the downside of knowledge and whether the Garden of Eden story contains within it a longing for a simpler, hunter-gatherer past. He begins by talking to Professor Michael Anderson, who runs the memory control laboratory at Cambridge University, and discovers that people can make themselves forget what they don't want to know.
