Loss of Long-Term Memory

Head | Neurology | Loss of Long-Term Memory (Symptom)


The long-term memories that will last for years or even decades. The long-term memory differs structurally and functionally from short-term memory. Short term memories move in the long-term memory through the process of long-term potentiation, the process of strengthening the connections between existing neurons improve the effectiveness of their communication. The long-term memory fades as part of the natural process of forgetting, which increases with age, stress and disease.


There are a number of reasons why long term memory problems may occur: traumatic brain injury; long term alcoholism can have an effect on long term memory storage and retrieval; aging, as we age, our brain cells begin to deteriorate; hormonal fluctuations; depression; chronic fatigue syndrome; fibromyalgia; underactive thyroid; neurodegenerative disease – Alzheimer’s, dementia, Huntington’s Disease, multiple sclerosis, and Parksinsons disease can all have significant effects on long term memory.
