  • A sudden loss of personal memory and the adoption of a new identity in a new place, often accom panied by significant stress. The fugue is, like dissociative amnesia, not due to direct physiological effects that can typically be found in other types of amnesia. According to psychoanalysis, repression is one of the key processes in the genesis of dissociative disorders, assuming that individuals experiencing a fugue act out otherwise unac ceptable impulses. It was furthermore suggested that dis sociative disorders such as dissociative identity disorder (DID) may be linked to repeated abuse in childhood, though this suggestion has not been empirically con firmed. For more information, see Ross (1997).
