MEMORY LOSS AND MEMORY PROBLEMS
Memory loss, to a certain degree, is a part of natural aging. However, this loss of memory is generally limited to episodic memories. These are memories about specific events or periods of time. Without a specific neurological disorder, other types of memory tend to degrade very little or may even improve. Semantic memory, which is responsible for facts, concepts and general knowledge, tend to improve. Oddly, semantic memory is created from episodic memories. Often the context of how the content is remembered is forgotten.
