Columbia to Make Film About a Medical Phenom

Posted: February 4th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Columbia to Make Film About a Medical PhenomSubmit Comment
Columbia Pictures and producer Scott Rudin have acquired rights to make a film based on the life of Henry Molaison, whose brain became the most studied gray matter in medical history.

Molaison became known in medical circles as H.M., the man who emerged from an experimental brain operation with a calamitous side effect: The removal of brain tissue in a procedure designed to halt seizures left him unable to form new memories.

Studio has completed a deal for screen rights to a memoir that just sold to Scribner and which will be written by Dr. Suzanne Corkin, the doctor who worked with Molaison for 45 years. The plan is to develop a film about H.M. as seen through the eyes of Corkin, a professor of behavioral neuroscience in the Dept. of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT.

H.M. suffered a head injury in a fall at age 9, but it was unclear why he developed progressively more violent seizures, with blackouts and convulsions so serious that he was forced to give up his work fixing motors. Lobotomies were considered radical fixes for seizures when H.M. received the surgery in 1953.

After the procedure, he could remember only things that occurred in his life and the world before the operation. Scientists used his misfortune to study the brain and memory, with H.M. serving as a willing patient for decades.
