Neuropsychological Analysis of an Amazing Memory
What is it about?
This is a detailed case study of patient MM, a man with extraordinary memory for both personal, autobiographical memory and general semantic and historical information. The results of psychological tests, cognitive tasks, and brain imaging analyses are described.
Why is it important?
Much of our knowledge about the brain systems underlying human memory come from patients with amnesia due to brain dysfunction. Studying persons with highly superior autobiographical memory (HSAM) and other forms of extraordinary memory adds a new and important perspective.
