Difficulties Caused by Memory Loss
The brain processes data drawn from the world around it and acts, in some ways, like a hard disk drive for your life. Memory, then, can be thought of as the storage and retrieval of information. This is vital on the most basic levels because it helps an individual to recall whether a particular object, a loaded gun for example, is dangerous or not.
It is also important because memory provides the basis upon which much of an individual’s interpersonal relationships, occupational tasks, and other artifacts of personality are built. Memory loss refers to a compromised ability to access existing memories as well as the impairment of new memory formation. The effects of memory loss may include the following, in addition to many others:
- Loss of independence
- Strained social relationships
- Inability to obtain or retain gainful employment
