Man with virtually no memory

From http://scienceblogs.com/neurophilosophy/2007/09/life_without_memory.php

YouTube video of Clive Wearing who has anterograde amnesia, and incapable of forming new memories. He also has retrograde amnesia with nearly all his past episodic memories wiped out. An infection damaged his hippocampus, + frontal and temporal lobes. He is left mainly with just his consciousness of his own existence.
