Amnesia

Amnesia

Amnesia includes partial or full memory loss. Some people recover their memories, others don't. Temporary memory loss is usually referred to as this condition. There are two different types of memory loss, anterograde and retrograde. A person with anterograde loss refers to some who cannot be trained for anything new. A person with retrograde loss completely forgets all events in the past. Loss caused by trauma can be of either type.

Symptoms

People with amnesia may have severe problems due to losing consciousness. They may find it difficult to remember current events as well as past events. Conversely, they may remember events from their childhood but can't recall anything since. Some people may only forget the events of their trauma, but remember everything else.

Causes

Amnesia is usually caused by some traumatic event, like an accident or a blow to the head. It may also be caused by taking certain sedatives. Some cases are caused by disease like Alzheimer's, which directly affects the brain, or because of poor brain circulation. A poor memory may also be exacerbated by a lack of stimulation. Some cases of amnesia are also psychologically based, caused by neurosis or anxiety.

Cautions

Memory loss may accompany brain damage caused by the trauma suffered by the patient. No matter how mild or severe the amnesia, losing events in their memory may cause difficulties at work, school or at home.
