Dissociative amnesia is a psychological disorder recognized by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM5) that causes partial or complete memory loss of facts or personal information. Eliminating crucial information about one’s own existence and identity is an alarming fact that can have very serious consequences. Just think of the hundreds of children forgotten in the car in the last 20 years, in the sun for hours, and tragically killed by heatstroke.
