Abstract

In this paper we present data from a closed head injury patient who presents a striking example of what Kapur (Cortex29, 217234, 1993) has termed "focal retrograde amnesia". The patient, D.H., is unable to recollect any autobiographical incidents from the pre-morbid period, although he is able to provide personal and public information from this period. The data are discussed in relation to other reported instances of focal retrograde amnesia and a preliminary theoretical account is offered.
