Clive Wearing, British musician and symphony conductor, contracted viral encephalitis in 1985. He survived the illness, but in the process lost his ability to store new memories. Today, 20-plus years later, Wearing remains institutionalized and in an amnesiac state in which he, over and over again, believes he is awakening from some void for the very first time. Watch the video Life Without Memory: Parts 1a and 2a from this unit’s studies and then share your ideas about how Wearing’s condition relates to concepts presented in this unit on memory models and processes. What do you think the video has to say about the nature of memory and its significance to human existence? What do you think might be learned about memory from studying cases such as Clive Wearing’s?
You will be evaluated on how well you can demonstrate that you understand the ideas presented throughout the unit, including assigned readings, discussions, and independent investigations. You will also be evaluated on the quality of your work—its academic rigor, how well it shows your ability to think critically, and how completely it covers the questions asked.
