Memory, in its broadest sense, refers to the storage and retrieval of any form of information but, when considered as an aspect of human cognition, it clearly does not describe a unitary function. Memorizing a new telephone number, recalling the details of a past holiday, acquiring the facts necessary to practise medicine, learning a new language or knowing how to drive a car are all tasks that depend on memory, but proficiency in one does not guarantee competence in the other. More importantly, these abilities may break down differentially in patients with brain disease. Following the description of a typical case, this chapter deals with a work on episodic memory in semantic dementia and attempts to answer four key questions.
