  • Loss of memory for any event that happens after damage to the brain. Physical causes for amnesia may include head trauma, degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, blockage of blood vessels to the brain, chronic infections, or alcoholism. In particular, damage to the hippocampus impairs the formation of new (especially episodic) memories and their transfer from short- to long-term memory. Implicit memory, procedural memory, and working memory are not necessarily affected by anterograde amnesia. For more information, see Corkin (2002).
