Humans who have had surgery or damage to this region of the brain also do poorly in remembering events of the immediate past. Remembering things which happen as recently as a few hours ago is called "short-term" memory. It is distinguished by medical men from recall of events in the more distant past. The two types of memory seem to be separate functions of the brain, because a disturbance of short-term memory does not prevent recall ol events further back in time, Short-Term Memory Monkeys have a short-term memory about equal to that of a very young child.
