Making New Memories

“Anterograde amnesia is a loss of the ability to create new memories after the event that caused amnesia, leading to a partial or complete inability to recall the recent past, while long-term memories from before the event remain intact.” (Source: Mayo Clinic and others) What would in mean to suffer the loss of the ability to create new memories? I find it almost inconceivable. As precious as our memories of the past can be, what a precious gift it is to make new memories with our family and friends. That 3 pound brain (some of us may have less than that) with its amazing pre-frontal cortex is the center of giftedness. This is the region of the brain that creates the orchestration of thoughts and actions in accordance with internal goals. I am not a doctor nor do I play a doctor on tv, but it would seems to me that it is this region of the brain that would lead you to ask: “Where’s my brain? Why have I not taken my family to Natchitoches to hear the stories, meet the people, savor the food and create new memories? “What was I thinking when our group settled on a ‘ho-hum’ outing when we could have created fantastic new memories by taking the tour of the filming sites of Steel Magnolias”? We could have popped corn and watched the movie again before going to Natchitoches.” I will come to my senses and contact Barbara today to plan for making new memories.
