Memory–50 First Dates

This clip comes from the movie “50 First Dates,” a comedy starring Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler.  Frequently when I teach about the types of amnesia, students bring up this movie.  This clip is of “10 Second Tom” a man who is unable to remember anything that happened more than 10 seconds ago.

Thanks to @brdcmpbll for the clip!

    You can also search for Clive Wearing, poor Clive is a real world example of someone much like 10 second Tom.
