RIBOT'S LAW. The French psychologist Theodule Armand Ribot (1839-1916) formulated this principle concerning amnesia, which states that retrograde memory-loss affects events that occurred closer in time to the onset of amnesia, and these events are remembered less well than those events that occurred further back in time. Thus, according to Ribot's law, in a traumatic retrograde amnesia situa tion, memories for events occurring immediately before the accident are the ones most likely to be lost. In cases of recovery from aphasia, or loss of language, the first language to be recalled is the first one that the person learned originally.
