This video is about memory loss and the difference between semantic and episodic memory and the way a disrupted hippocampus prevents working memory ("short term memory") from being transferred to semantic and episodic memory, the two systems of long term storage used by the brain for facts (semantic) and experience (episodic.)

These aspects of memory formation and loss are explored in intimate interviews revealing the huge disparity in episodic and semantic memory that can stem from damage to the hippocampus.
