「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

人總愛想當年

人總愛想當年



前中大校長、諾貝爾物理學得獎者、光線之父:高錕教授,退休後老年得了“老人癡呆症”,今已改稱為:“腦退化症” Alzheimer disease or Alzheimer's disease,暫時沒有藥醫理,病情只會續步轉差。據聞 郎奴列根 總統,退休後也患上此症,前些年才年老去世。


我不是學醫,不打算談 Alzheimer's disease 腦退化症,我只愛想當年!


【維基百科】記憶,是人類心智活動的一種,屬於心理學或腦部科學的範疇。記憶代表着一個人對過去活動、感受、經驗的印象累積,有相當多種分類,主要因環境、時間和知覺來分。

短期記憶
短期記憶模型在過去25年裡面為"工作記憶"所取代,有三個系統組成:空間視覺形成的短期視覺印象。聲音迴路儲存聲音信息,這可以通過內在不斷重複長時間存在。中央執行系統管理這兩個系統並且將信息與長期記憶的內容建立聯繫。


長期記憶
記憶的內容不但是按主題,而且按時間被組織管理。一個新的經驗,一種通過訓練得到的運動模式,首先去到 工作記憶作短期記錄,在此信息可以被快速讀取,但容量有限。出於經濟原因考慮,這些信息必須作一定清理。重要的或者通過「關聯」作用被聯想在一起的信息會被輸送到中長期記憶。不重要的信息會被刪除。

記憶內容越是被頻繁讀取,或是一種運動被頻繁重複進行,反饋就越是精細,內容所得的評價會提高,或是運動被優化。後面一點的意思是,不重要的信息會被刪除,或是另存到其他位置。記憶的深度一方面和該內容與其他內容的連接數目,另一方面與情感對之的評價有關。



曾經在網誌內談過,“回憶”和“記憶”。


【舊文】我認為記憶跟回憶,是有時間性的分別﹐翻看網上字典
「回憶」是: 對往事的追憶﹐

而「記憶」是
1. 泛指心中所記、腦中所憶
2. .心理學上指由識記、保持、再識, 三個基本環節組成的心理歷程。


顯然回憶是指對往事﹐舊物﹐產生了感情才去追憶。 我們是對事件﹑事情﹑古蹟﹑古物是先把記憶起來﹐到若干時間﹐年月日後﹐憑記憶去回憶﹐去追憶。


而記憶是指一個現在式的動詞﹐包括由識記、保持、再識﹐三個基本環節組成的歷程。我們臨進入試場﹐最後衝刺﹐記憶答案﹐憑記憶在試卷寫出來﹐那就是「記憶」。



寫網誌就是把我個人的 “思想﹑思考﹑思念” 和 “所見﹑所聞﹑所做”的紀錄,方便以後翻查,別讓它在腦海中消失了!


記憶、回憶,憶人、憶物,乜都好憶,唉!其實是真正人老了,就會時常“想當年”Those were the Days! 不過,原來不幸患上腦退化症,連想當年也是可以抹煞掉,哀哉!哀哉!




Those were the days 《Mary Hopkin》
Once upon a time there was a tavern
Where we used to raise a glass or two
Remember how we laughed away the hours
Think of all the great things we would do

Those were the days my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
We'd live the life we'd choose
We'd fight and never lose
For we were young and sure to have our way
La la la la la la la la la

Then the busy years went rushing by us
We lost our starry notions on the way
If by chance I'd see you in the tavern
We'd smile at one another and we'd say...

Those were the days my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
We'd live the life we'd choose
We'd fight and never lose
Those were the days, oh yes, those were the days
La la la la la la la la la

Just tonight I stood before the tavern
Nothing seemed the way it used to be
In the glass I saw a strange reflection
Was that lonely woman really me?

Through the door there came familiar laughter
I saw your face and heard you call my name
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same....


繼續想當年 Those were the days!

SBB:

My mom was in hospital/rehab for 4 months during which she didn't have a chance to exercise her brain. Upon discharge, she lost a lot of short- and long-term memories. Altho she has recovered some memories, there are some that are unfortunatley non-recoverable.

Writing blog is a good way of exercising our brains and retaining our memories.

.... gotta go!!!
