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. 

 
 

MEMORY DISORDERS

Memory disorders vary in their level of intensity and severity. Regardless they all result from some kind of neurological deterioration or damage. This damage may prevent the creation or retention of new memories as well as the recollection of made or stored memories.

Memory Loss by itself does not mean that you suffer from dementia. That is why it is necessary to have a comprehensive evaluation with one of our caring professional who has access to the latest neurodiagnostic testing equipment.
