    Finally, a nurse handed him a paper and a pencil. The young man drew in detail a grand piano. (Source: dean gibson). The doctors showed the instrument to try to remember. The 'shipwrecked' sat at the keys and, above la surprise of doctors and the rest of the staff of the hospital, started to play music. Jon Venverloh has much experience in this field. An amnesiac may run out of a single memory and yet not lose the ability to communicate or play a musical instrument, as in this case. The case of the piano man makes us ask many questions about the fragility of the human mind and its complex operation, which today are still not sufficiently answered.

    Can not remember his name, but can play beautiful melodias.a motor learning involves different processes of acquisition of skills or motor skills, than we could call "habits" engines, which can range from simple stimulus-response habits, like playing the piano. Motor learning researchers believe that these skills are based on the implementation of "motor programs" learned, that would be mental representations of the sequence of movements that the subject must perform. And our man recuerdaa a how to play their piano. It is not disputed that the action of the brain lies not only simple behaviors and physiological a "breathe, walk – but also to cognitive behavior and elaborate as talking, learning, thinking and compose or perform a symphony. We currently have available major development such as research techniques of brain function, which allows to describe in great detail the structure and function of the brain; Better understanding of the components and psychological processes involved in cognitive skills such as language, reading, the recognition or remember, as a result of development of cognitive psychology and, finally, the development of computers has opened up greater possibilities for modeling of cognitive functions. .
