Professor, Have you got Goldfish Memory Syndrome?
A recent study revealed that a third of PACE trial psychiatrists can't remember their own phone number or recall the birthdays of just three of their close CBT relatives. And it’s all down to the toe-curlingly embarrassing PACE trial.
It’s a type of brain dysfunction,’ says Toshiyuki Sawaguchi, professor of neurobiology at Japan’s Hokkaido University, who led the study.
