British experts have described a unique case of loss of memory 38 year old customer. After the visit to the dentist, a man for 10 years, stuck in a Groundhog day - he lives only last one day before disease or remember new information.
British clinical psychologist Gerald Burgess from the University of Leicester described in the scientific report a unique case of memory loss, reports Softpedia. The fact that his 38-year-old patient forgets the current actions in 90 minutes. His brain is like doing a "reset" every thirty minutes.
"After hours of root canal treatment, during which the patient was done under local anesthesia, he can't remember anything, not counting the last 90 minutes," explains Burgess. Unusual disease caught up with a man ten years ago, after his visit to the dentist.
Since he can't remember new information, and only lives the last day before the memory loss. In other words, every morning the Englishman wakes up with the same idea that now he needs to visit the dentist. Thus, any new information can Deposit in his memory of just 90 minutes.
The picture is unclear illness reminded scientist famous movie "Groundhog Day" in which the hero bill Murray gets stuck in the same day. It is noteworthy that an extraordinary patient is very conscious of his identity, he remembers his name and past events that occurred before the disease.
Now, to remember new information, the patient is forced to write everything down in an electronic organizer. Exploring obscure disorder, scientists found men any brain damage.
Thus, despite the fact that the memory of Britain's vanished specifically after dental treatment, the psychologist is in no hurry to merge these 2 facts.

Scientists continue to find the causes of the syndrome of "Groundhog day" and urge all other professionals to respond, if in private practice, they have encountered similar cases.
