Amnesia After Brain Damage “H.M.” In 1953, “H.M.” had his hippocampus and surrounding areas of the temporal lobes removed to control his intractable seizures. Although his seizures decreased dramatically, he experienced such severe memory impairment that the surgeon vowed that he’d never again attempt such a procedure. He had massive anterograde amnesia . He was unable to store any new memories. (It was 1953 for the rest of his life.) He had moderate retrograde amnesia . He could not remember many events that occurred between 1 and 3 years before his surgery.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
