    Can individuals function successfully when they forget what they learn? Is so, how? If not, why not?
    There are two types of clinical forgetting; retrograde and anterograde amnesia. Both types deal with memory lost and have no effect on a person's functioning. Retrograde amnesia occurs when there is trauma to the head and memories prior are lost (Lungu, 2007); but there is ability to relearn those memories by repetition and exposure. Anterograde amnesia restricts the ability to learn new information, but old memories are still intact (Lungu, 2007). Even with either amnesia a person still possesses basic cognitive functions like walking, talking, eating and the ability to learn and relearn. Forgetting learning is more of memories and information and has little impact on a person's human functions.
