© 2019 Memories are often conceptualized as permanent entities; however, retrieval of memories via stimulus prompts can return them to an active state, which initiates a period of lability before the memories are reconsolidated into long-term storage. Importantly, during this period, memories can be disrupted/altered. A growing body of work has focused on translating animal and experimental science into reconsolidation-based interventions for clinical disorders maintained by maladaptive memories. Interventions targeting reward-based and fear-based memories undergirding substance use and anxiety-related disorders, respectively, have shown significant potential. There are several promising pharmacological agents and behavioral approaches that have been used to therapeutically target memory reconsolidation. Here, we discuss the current state of science with special emphasis on the clinical utility of these approaches.
