Anterograde amnesia

Anterograde amnesia refers to difficulty in remembering events that occur after the onset of amnesia. It appears to reflect a disruption in the transfer of events to long-term memory during learning.

It is proposed that a common feature of anterograde amnesia is damage to part of an “extended hippocampal system” comprising the hippocampus, the fornix, the mammillary bodies and the anterior thalamic nuclei.

Damage to this system results in deficits in the recall of episodic information, the core symptom of anterograde amnesia.

Patients with anterograde amnesia are, for most practical purposes, unable to learn and have defective recent memory, the kind and severity of memory defect varying somewhat with the nature of the disorder.
