Although they might have some differences, they do agree on certain aspects such as anterograde and retrograde amnesia. They both refer to anterograde amnesia as the loss of memory that happened prior to the event and retrograde amnesia as the incapacity of forming new memories after the trauma or
A possible reason for this sense of familiarity could be due to slight memory traces that were left behind due to the insignificance of the memory. An analogy for this is when you erase a program off of a computer, if the program played a role in other systems, you may notice that the system runs differently and might trigger a reminder that you need this program to proceed. Due to the erasing of their memories of each other neither person is the same as they were before the procedure once they are given the information that they had each other deleted. the possible run off of this information could cause an emotional pain and confusion as to why they would do such a
Bradykinesia, a disease that could ruin your life. This disease causes a person to gain, slow movements, and even freeze up sometimes (Medical.net). Bradykinesia causes a person to lose dopamine in parts of their brain. When you lose dopamine in the brain it causes you to slowly gain the symptoms of this disease (HealthLine). Even though there are many setbacks to having bradykinesia, it can be helped slow down and stop some of the symptoms.
This cause one’s self to isolate themselves and to avoid people. It is even said that people who isolate them self are more likely to die at an early age. The next disorder is almost the same as the last one, and it is referred to as antisocial personality disorder.

Along with this their movements slow down, and they might also lose their sense of smell. In some cases they might suffer from sleep disorders, depression, constipation. In later stages dementia, which, according to Google Definitions, is defined as a chronic or persistent disorder of the mental processes caused by brain disease or injury and marked by memory disorders, personality changes, and impaired reasoning. Dementia might occur as the disease spreads out to involve other nerve cells. To this day scientists still don’t know for sure what causes Parkinson’s disease.
Opponents of using ECT with major depressive disorder Cognitive side effects consider as the main limitation of ECT(Kellner et al., 2010; Prudic, 2008 & Sackeim et al., 2009). Although the decrease symptoms of depression obtained by ECT, the improvement in some neurocognitive functions have been seen, like attention, concentration and general intelligence, some alteration has been observed in abstract thinking and reasoning and creativity (Kellner et al., 2010) . and adverse cognitive effects for examples disorientation, impairment in learning, anterograde and retrograde memory loss , may be happened after a convulsive shock(Prudic, 2008). Other study done by Consoli, De Carvalho, and Cohen (2013) conclude that ECT treatment effect on decreased intellect, attention, executive functions , perception and visual function , also can slower information processing speed and reaction time, additionally may contribute with language
Repressed memories are memories a person subconsciously forgets but later remembers. These are typically memories one wants to forget, most commonly, childhood abuse. Many times what they are remembered is at a time when they likely did not fully understand what was going on. Many of the stories of abuse happen when the child is under the age of about 8 and they don’t know what is truly happening and that it is wrong. On the penny I was very close to choosing the right one.
Repressed Memories: Causes, Mechanisms, & Coping Strategies In some cases, individuals may experience a traumatic event that causes a strong stress response via the sympathetic nervous system, that memory of the events becomes repressed, and generates negative emotions lead to intense sensations of: anger, depression, fear, guilt, hopelessness, or shame. These emotions didn’t interfere with cognitive function and memory processing, and cause a” gap” or lapse in memory surrounding the time of the trauma, makes some individuals forget significant details surrounding the traumatic event, while others may forget the entire experience. This memory that submerged beneath conscious perception is called “repressed memory”. What are repressed memories?
According to Groome (1999), the causes of amnesia can be of two types which are the physical cause (organic amnesia) and psychological cause (psychogenic amnesia). Organic Amnesia occurs when there are physical damages or injuries to the brain. Some examples of organic amnesia includes Alzheimer disease, Korsakoff’s syndrome (Korsakoff’s amnesia), Herpes Simplex Encephalitis (HSE), temporal lobe surgery, Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) and other injuries affecting the brain such as stroke, Huntington disease and Parkinson’s disease (Groome, 1999). Whereas Psychogenic Amnesia is related to psychological aspects such as one’s forgetting of self-identity following from a trauma or tragic experiences. The triggers for physical cause of amnesia includes: • Stroke • Encephalitis • Coeliac disease • Oxygen deprivation like carbon monoxide poisoning • Some medications like sleeping pills • Brain tumor • Seizures Where the triggers for psychological cause of amnesia includes: • Victim of a violent crime • Victim of child abuse • Sexual abuse • Being involved in a natural disaster • Being present during a terrorist attack On the other hand, based on findings of Banich and Cohen (2003), they argue that the causes of amnesia are divided into two major types which is the injury to the
These type of dementia occurs about; this occurs due to the short-term memory loss. The other problem will be visual-spatial areas, reasoning, judgement and insight. Hippocampus is the region where it gets affected by Alzheimer’s disease, not only that there will be
