In amnesia of psychological origin (psychogenic amnesia) there is a loss of knowledge of personal identity with preservation of other information, often including complex learned information or skills. The patient may not know who he is, but knows who is the Queen, the President, or his doctor. Unaware of his own personal history, he may yet play chess well, speak one or two languages, read the newspaper, and so forth.
