BBC Horizon - How Does Your Memory Work?

Science series. How does the human memory work? The stories of
John and Genevieve are helping scientists to understand.
John's memory was damaged at birth. Although he is
intelligent, he can't catch a bus or cook a meal because he
forgets what he is doing. Genevieve's problem is the opposite
- she wants to forget. She is haunted by a sexual assault and
suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. A pioneering
technique could erase her memory with a pill.
