A 26-year-old Taiwan man has now learnt to live with a memory disorder with help of notebooks. He is known as the notebook guy as he keeps writing everything.
Nine years ago, Chen seriously damaged his hippocampus, a part of the brain associated with forming memories, in a traffic accident. He has lost the ability to make and retain short-term memories. Instead, he painstakingly records his days in lined notebooks, crammed with entries in blue ink.
“I use the notebook to remember who I helped today, how much farm work I did, whether there was rain … the notebook is my memory,” said Chen, who lives with his stepmother, Wang Miao-cyong, 65, in a remote village in Hsinchu County, northwestern Taiwan.Click Here: Putters
