Amnesia is a condition in which the sufferer loses the ability to recall information that is stored in the memory or to memorize data. People suffering from amnesia have partial or complete loss of memory. This loss of memory occurs due to brain damage either by brain injury or due to use of specific drugs.
It can be also caused by some degenerative brain diseases. Everyone is forgetful of things or events now and then but it does not mean that they have amnesia. Amnesia involves large scale memory loss like forgetting one’s nearest and most loved ones, vital facts and other memorable events that are indelible till life and should not have been forgotten. Many people who have amnesia find it difficult to learn new information and form new memories as well as recall the past experiences and information. In anterograde amnesia, the patient is unable to assimilate and remember new information that ought to be stored in the short term memory and in retrograde amnesia the patient is unable to recall events that happened before the trauma but can remember everything that happened after it.
