Permanent Present Tense
Relying on 55 years of behavioral and imaging studies, Suzanne Corkin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) shows that short-term, long-term, declarative, and nondeclarative capacities of memory rely on different brain circuits. The case of Henry Molaison, who at age 27 underwent an experimental brain operation that left him in dense amnesia with a preserved intellect, will be discussed in some detail.
