RE: The Curse of Amnesia
There was something profound that I wanted to post, but I forgot what it was.

That is the only game I came across that legitimately makes me paranoid..

He can still play music because he still has procedural memory .

Only partly. Something occurred 20 years before to cause his condition. His memories before that event appear to be largely intact, hence his recognition of his wife, his memory of how to play the piano, and a good many other things.

What appears to have happened is that he cannot form new memories.

yes, but he can also create new habits. That's what I find interesting.(based on other cases)

His memories prior to the infection that devastated his life are not intact.

I speculate that he recognizes his wife because he formed a habit of greeting her by name.

I speculate that he recognizes his wife because he formed a habit of greeting her by name.

The second sentence of that citation is "He lacks the ability to form new memories and cannot recall aspects of his past memories.".
But is goes on to say "He remembers little of his life before 1985; he knows, for example, that he has children from an earlier marriage, but cannot remember their names."

So that's not very clear.

He has retrograde amnesia....which means his past memories are not largely intact.....how is that not clear?
