Memory is one of the most fascinating functions of our brain. It seems natural to us that we remember different things and recognize people. It’s one of the most important things in our lives. But when we lose it – as Clive Wearing did, nothing will ever be the same. His amnesia caused by the herpes simplex virus destroyed the part of the brain responsible for memory – he can only remember 7 seconds. Memory is an inseparable part of reality and life without it is extremely difficult to live without it. Having an extremely accurate memory named “
termed hyperthymestic syndrome or hyperthymesia” like Jill Price is also very difficult. Of course, in a way it’s a blessing for her that she can go back to all the beautiful moments in her life for a moment. However, it is also a curse, because these memories came back to her all the time and appear unexpectedly in her head, and they can be unpleasant memories that she would rather not remember. Both cases are very interesting and show how incredible human memory is.
