memory loss

Amnesia refers to the loss of the ability to remember certain things, such as facts, events in the past, information and experiences from the past on a daily basis, this phenomenon is also called Amnesia syndrome, which is not related to problems associated with listening, sensory perception, language, ability to deduce and motivation.

People with amnesia usually have a clear mind and maintain their independence, but they face serious problems if they are asked to learn something new, process new information, and form new memories, they may not be able to remember events in their past or information from the past.

Although amnesia is usually an integral part of the plot of movies and television series, it is rare in real life.

Unlike transient amnesia, or transient global amnesia, women are non - transient, and treatment with medication or other medical treatments cannot restore the memory lost in women's disease, however, some ways to improve memory in addition to social support and psychotherapy can help people.

Amnesia does not harm IQ (l HL), General Culture, perception, listening level, judgment ability, personality, or individual identity, and people with Alzheimer's disease can understand written and heard words, learn new skills, such as: riding a bike, playing the piano, these people do well on tests of attention, concentration and drawing conclusions, and they realize and understand that they have a memory problem.

Dementia includes memory loss, but it is accompanied by additional prominent cognitive disorders, which can lead to an imbalance in the ability to perform simple daily actions, and although there is a certain type of forgetfulness associated with simple cognitive disorders, but the memory problems associated with this disorder are not as serious as those that accompany women.

Types of amnesia

There are two main types of memory loss, namely:

Nervous amnesia.

Dissociative amnesia (Dissociative amnesia).

Symptoms of amnesia

A common symptom of amnesia is:

The decline in the ability to learn and process new information coincides with the onset of gynaecological disease.

Decreased ability to remember events that occurred in the past or information that was known in the past (NR er E.).

Short-term memory problems (rrrrrrr), as they cannot contain any new information.

Loss of memories of the recent past, while retaining memories of the distant past stored deep in memory.

Thinking of false memories, such as completely false and fabricated stories, or a collection of true but not properly arranged memories.

The presence of neuropathies, such as: inconsistent movements between them, or tremors.

Confusion or disorientation in place.

Causes and risk factors for memory loss

The proper functioning of memory requires the activation of several parts of the brain, and any disease affecting the brain can be a disabling factor for the complex and complex functioning of memory. Arise hermits as a result of hit in the structure of the brain responsible for language abilities, and sensations, memory, these structures include the hippocampus (Hippocampus), the thalamus (Thalamus), located deep in the interior of the brain, and in the lower part of the frontal lobes (Anterior lobes).

Causes of memory loss

The causes of memory loss vary according to the type of memory loss as follows:

1. Causes of neurological amnesia

Basic etiology of neuroblastoma:

Stroke .

Encephalitis (Encepha) is caused by an infection caused by a virus, such as: herpes simplex virus (.).

Inflammation of the brain limbic system on the dimensions of the tumor (PLE - Paraneoplastic Limbic encephalitis) as a result of the reaction of the immune system on cancer located in another member in the body of the patient.

Lack of regular oxygen supply to the brain following a heart attack, respiratory distress, or carbon monoxide poisoning.

A hemorrhage in the space between the skull and the brain is called subarachnoid hemorrhage 

Excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages that lead to thiamine deficiency, such as: wernica-Korsakoff syndrome).

Tumor in the parts of the brain responsible for adjusting memory.

Some specific syndromes of epileptic seizures.

Treatment with electrical or treatment electroshock (Electroconvulsive treatment - ECT).

Head injuries, such as road traffic injuries, can lead to confusion and problems with the ability to remember and process new information, especially during the early stages of recovery, but these problems are in the majority of cases transient.

Mild cognitive disorder .

2. Causes of dissociative amnesia

Appears as a result of psychological trauma or trauma  such as being a victim of a violent criminal act, in this type of disorder the person may lose part of personal memories and information about his biography for several hours, for days or longer.

Risk groups

The risk of developing gynaecological disease increases if a person is exposed to one of the following experiences:

Brain surgery, head injury or trauma.


Excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages.

Complications of memory loss

The severity and scope of gynecomastia vary from case to case, but even a mild or moderate degree of gynecomastia can significantly affect the life of a sick person, negatively affecting the following::

It affects daily lifestyle and quality of life, and women may lead to numerous problems at work, at school, and in social life.

Some people with very serious memory problems have to spend their lives under constant supervision and care, or move to an appropriate treatment center.

Diagnosis of amnesia

In order to diagnose Amnesia, The attending physician should conduct a comprehensive evaluation, in order to negate other possible causes of memory loss, such as: dementia, Alzheimer's disease, depression, or brain tumor, and this evaluation begins with a careful study of the patient's medical history, and the diagnosis is made by the following mechanism:

1. Interview the patient and his family

The Attending Physician often asks questions to determine the extent of the memory injury, and may include questions that can form part of the evaluation:

Can the patient recall events from the recent or distant past

When did memory problems begin and how did they develop over time

Have you been exposed to trigger factors, such as: head injury, stroke, or surgery

Is there a family history of the disease with special emphasis on possible neurological diseases

Does he drink alcohol, or does he use drugs

Are there other signs, such as: confusion, language problems, personality changes, or an imbalance in a person's ability to care for themselves

Is there a medical history of epileptic seizures, head aches, depression, or cancer

2. Physical examination

Physical examination usually includes examination of the nervous system that tests involuntary reflexes  the functioning of the senses, balance and other physiological aspects of the functioning of the brain and nervous system.

3. Testing the patient's ability to think

The Attending Physician tests the ability to think, the ability to judge, short-term memory, and long-term memory of the patient, then tests the patient's familiarity with general information, such as the name of the current president, as well as how much he remembers personal information or events from the past.

4. Other tests

The doctor requests that the patient undergo other diagnostic examinations, such as:

Magnetic resonance imaging.

Computed tomography

The layout of the power of the brain (EEG - Electroencephalography) with the aim of diagnosing damages or other deviations in the brain.

Blood tests to detect malnutrition.

Amnesia treatment

The treatment of memory loss is focused on methods and measures aimed at helping and compensating for memory loss, and the treatment is as follows:

1. Professional treatment (u)

A person with Alzheimer's disease may benefit from professional therapy to learn how to store new information to replace old lost information, or how to use undamaged information as a basis for compiling new information.memory training may include many different activities that help arrange information so that it is easier to remember in the future and improve understanding of complex conversations.

2. Using a variety of digital devices (r Usona ul U -l -)

Digital devices, such as a computer and a mobile phone can be very useful to them, and through training and exercise, people with a high-risk condition can learn how to use and use various electronic devices and systems to carry out their daily tasks.

For example, an electronic device can be programmed to remember to take medications.

3. Treatment with traditional methods

There are also non-technical methods and aids that can help patients, including: a simple notebook, a calendar, or someone else to remind the patient to take medications, and photos of known people and places.

4. Drug therapy

To this day, there is no specific medication intended to treat most women, and since Korsakoff syndrome develops as a result of a thiamine deficiency, treatment includes taking thiamine substitutes and maintaining a healthy diet.

Researchers are still studying several neurotransmitters that play a role in memory formation, which could one day help uncover new treatments for memory disorders.

But the fact that the processes in the brain are so complex and complex makes the prospect of finding a single drug that treats all memory problems almost impossible.

Prevention of amnesia

The primary cause of the majority of cases of gynaecology is a brain injury, so the best way to prevent it is to avoid such injuries, and in order to reduce the likelihood of brain injuries should:

Refrain from consuming excessively alcoholic beverages.

Put a helmet on the head while riding two-wheeled vehicles and fasten the seat belt while traveling in the car.

Treat brain infections quickly and intensively.

Go for immediate treatment in the event of a stroke or an Aneurysm.

Alternative treatments

There is no cure for herbal amnesia, but there are some herbs that help to activate memory, including:



Pan gravel.

Ginkgo herb.

Herb ginseng.
