Satisfactory Essays

During the discussion on memory, we deliberated on the difference between emotional, procedural and episodic memory, the correlation between identity and humanity, the perception of time, and the ability of self-realization. Firstly, we explicated the emotional aspect of Clive Wearing’s severe case of amnesia, but also realized his love for Deborah (his wife) and music were bittersweet. His raw emotional memory was left untouched, whereas his episodic memory was severely affected. Furthermore, we examined the parallels between identity and humanity. Some believed that being human means to display emotions, whereas others affirmed that emotions require episodic memory. Moreover, we concluded that memory is inherently altered through repetition.
