What if a Tumor Stole Your Memories? Then Years Later, Surgery Restored Those Memories?

I just received a fascinating email today from Demetri Kofinas, Executive Producer of Offline Productions.

Because of a brain tumor, Kofinas went years not knowing what he was saying, where he had been, or what he was doing. For example, he might have said Barack Obama in a sentence when he really meant American actor and filmmaker Denzel Washington.

The condition grew worse over time. New York state and Boston the city could easily be the same, or even reversed on a map. He lost most of his friends as it appeared to them he was on some wildly powerful drugs.

He could not remember anything he was doing or even why he was there. The memories were stored somewhere in his brain, but he could not process information correctly at the moment, nor retrieve those memories later.

Following brain surgery, he was immediately coherent. Over the next few weeks and months all his lost memories came back.

For the whole story, please see Demetri Kofinas' article A tumor stole every memory I had. This is what happened when it all came back.

Those living in New York, may wish to see Twelfth Night, Offline Productions' rendition of a Shakespearean classic.
