Scientists have claimed that it may be possible to cure a phobia with nothing more than a simple injection.
Such injections would work by switching off areas of the brain responsible for generating the irrational emotional responses associated with whatever it is the individual is phobic to.
Fear of spiders, sharks, snakes, heights and other phobias could be cured by a simple injection which prevents people from learning to be afraid, claim scientists.
