Hilts -- one of the few people to spend time with Henry, who is sequestered in a hospital -- draws on Henry's bizarre situation as well as current cutting-edge research into the functions of the brain in a revealing investigation of-- How an individual's memory is constructed-- When and why memory fails-- The efficacy of mnemonic devices-- The validity of "recovered" memoriesPart poetic reflection and philosophical meditation, part popular science and investigative journalism, Memory's Ghost is an unforgettable journey into the mysteries of the human mind.
