Resources to inject real life detail into your fiction

Amnesia, memory and brain systems from PubMed Central

Amnesia, memory and brain systems from PubMed Central – http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1692096

Representative questions that can be answered with this resource:

  • What actually causes amnesia?
  • How is short-term (less than 1 min) memory affected by amnesia?
  • What are some things that can make it even harder for amesiacs to remember things?
  • What does the theory about multiple types of memory imply for amesiacs?

Description:

A 12 page journal article from 1997 that serves as a technical introduction to Amnesia and how in some cases the brain can reorganize itself and begin collecting memories again. Would be good for stories that need technical detail.
