Transcript

  • 1. AND RETROGRADE AMNESIA
  • 2. PSYCHOLOGY BASIS --RETROGRADE AMNESIA--  RETROGRADE AMNESIA IS A LOSS OF MEMORY-ACCESS TO EVENTS THAT OCCURRED, OR INFORMATION THAT WAS LEARNED, BEFORE AN INJURY OR THE ONSET OF A DISEASE  RIBOT'S LAW OF RETROGRADE AMNESIA WAS HYPOTHESIZED IN 1881 BY THÉODULE RIBOT. IT STATES THAT THERE IS A TIME GRADIENT IN RETROGRADE AMNESIA, SO THAT RECENT MEMORIES ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE LOST THAN THE MORE REMOTE MEMORIES.
  • 3. --RETROGRADE AMNESIA--  COMMONLY RESULTS FROM DAMAGE TO THE BRAIN REGIONS MOST CLOSELY ASSOCIATED WITH EPISODIC AND DECLARATIVE MEMORY, INCLUDING AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION.  IS COMMONLY ASSOCIATED WITH TRAUMA TO THE HIPPOCAMPUS, KORSAKOFF SYNDROME, AND INDIVIDUALS SUFFERING FROM ANTEROGRADE AMNESIA .  IN EXTREME CASES, INDIVIDUALS MAY COMPLETELY FORGET WHO THEY ARE
  • 4. MEDIA --FINDING NEMO—  MARLIN AND HIS WIFE CORAL (BOTH CLOWN FISH), ARE ADMIRING THEIR NEW HOME AND THEIR CLUTCH OF EGGS WHEN THEY GET ATTACKED  MARLIN AND ONLY ONE EGG SURVIVE. MARLIN NAMES HIM NEMO  NEMO GROWS UP AND ON HIS FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL, HE GETS CAUGHT BY SOME FISHERMEN
  • 5. --FINDING NEMO-- MARLIN SEES AND GOES LOOKING FOR NEMO AS THE BOAT SPEEDS AWAY MARLIN MEETS DORY (A REGAL BLUE TANG FISH), WHO TAGS ALONG IN THE SEARCH FOR NEMO
  • 6. CONNECTION  MARLIN IS IN PURSUIT OF THE BOAT THAT NEMO WAS ON WHEN HE BUMPS INTO DORY  MARLIN IS GOING ON ABOUT THE BOAT AND DORY SAYS SHE SEEN THE BOAT.  DORY TELLS MARLIN WHICH DIRECTION, AND TELLS HIM TO FOLLOW HER  SHORTLY AFTER, DORY STARTS LOOKING OVER HER SHOULDER NOTICING MARLIN FOLLOWING HER AND SHE STARTS TO SWIM AWAY FROM HIM  DORY FINALLY TURNS AROUND AND TELLS MARLIN TO STOP FOLLOWING HER  MARLIN TELLS DORY ABOUT THE BOAT AND ONCE AGAIN SHE TELLS HIM SHE SEEN ONE AND TO FOLLOW HER
  • 7. VALIDITY  MARLIN STOPS DORY AND EXPLAINS THAT SHE HAS ALREADY TOLD HIM WHICH WAY THE BOAT WENT  DORY LOOKS CONFUSED AND ASKS, “I DID?”  DORY APOLOGIZES AND TELLS MARLIN, “…I SUFFER FROM SHORT TERM MEMORY LOSS.” MARLIN DOESN’T BELIEVE HER AND SHE SAYS, “NO, ITS TRUE, I FORGET THINGS ALMOST INSTANTLY. IT RUNS IN MY FAMILY. WELL…AT LEAST I THINK IT DOES. HMM, WHERE ARE THEY?” ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AFTER, SHE TURNS TO MARLIN AND SAYS, “CAN I HELP YOU?”
  • 8. MY TAKE SINCE THE MOVIE DOES NOT EXPLAIN WHY DORY HAS SHORT TERM MEMORY LOSS, I CONCLUDE THAT DORY HAS RETROGRADE AMNESIA.  OVERALL, THE MOVIE ITS SELF IS GREAT, BUT LACKS AN EXPLANATION AS TO HOW DORY GOT HER MEMORY LOSS.
