I feel like the evidence of his sensory memory could be the fact that he had “musical flashbacks” as we see at the beginning. When he moves his fingers like he would be playing, although he is just tapping his leg. I wouldn’t say his short-term and long-term memory and episodic memory are functioning, he can’t learn new things, he doesn’t remember anything from the past, he just knows some things but he has no recollection of them actually happening. I think he does have semantic memory about a few things like names of objects, but I don’t think this part of his memory was shown enough in the documentary.
