Childhood Amnesia in Children: A Prospective Study Across Eight  Years

This was a prospective study of earliest memories across 8 years for 37 children who were of age 4–9 years initially. In three interviews (initial and after 2 and 8 years) children provided their three earliest memories; those from earlier interviews that were not spontaneously provided later were cued. There was little consistency in the earliest memory or overlap across interviews in spontaneous memories. The youngest group also forgot over half their initial memories although few were forgotten by older children. For consistency of content, 25%–32% of information by former 6‐ to 9‐year‐olds was the same after 8 years, but

Porter, Olivier Thibault Both insulin signaling disruption and Ca2+ dysregulation are closely related to memory loss during aging and increase the vulnerability to Alzheimer’s disease (AD). In hippocampal neurons, aging-related changes in calcium regulatory pathways have been shown to lead to higher intracellular calcium levels and an increase in the Ca2+-dependent afterhyperpolarization (AHP), which is associated with cognitive decline.

Despite what the mainstream media is telling you, sugar is not your enemy. Your body evolved to eat sweet foods. In fact, it’s how our ancestors knew a food growing in the wild was safe to eat and healthy. But your body did not evolve to eat starchy, high carbohydrate sugars from bread, pasta, cereal and other grains. Ever since we were told to eat low fat, this has been the bulk of the our diet. The result has been a modern epidemic of obesity and diabetes. At the same time, we face skyrocketing rates of dementia and Alzheimer’s. Big Pharma has been trying for decades to come...

Do you have trouble getting to sleep? Or staying asleep? You’re not alone. Sleeping a solid 7 to 9 hours every night should be the most natural thing in the world. But insomnia has become an epidemic. And modern medicine does very little to help you restore natural rest. Big Pharma’s answer is to knock you out with drugs. That’s not the same as sleep. “Sleep aids” like Ambien, Lunesta, and others cause dizziness, headache, depression and anxiety. They can lead to suicidal thoughts, memory loss and hallucinations. Some people report sleep-walking, and even unconscious sleep-eating or sleep-dr...

Many of today’s most popular drugs can make you forgetful. They inhibit your brain’s chemical messengers. And this blocks your concentration, memory and ability to focus. More specifically, these drugs block the activity of a neurotransmitter in your brain called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is directly involved in learning and memory. And blocking it is a risky business… I’ve seen confusion, memory loss, and declining mental skills in patients who take these drugs. New research confirms what I see in my own practice. One recent study found that people taking these kinds of drugs had shrunken ar...

I don't think I Have amnesia. But no matter how much I read, I find it almost impossible to recall. I think I might get accepted in med school; but is there any chance that I will be a good medical student? (Med school starts in May. Assuming I get accepted.)

Publication date: Available online 16 October 2017 Source:Neuropsychologia Author(s): Angelica Staniloiu, Hans J. Markowitsch, Andreas Kordon Autobiographical amnesia is found in patients with focal or diffuse brain damage (“organic amnesia”), but also without overt brain damage (at least when measured with conventional brain imaging methods). This last condition is usually named dissociative amnesia at present, and was originally described as hysteria. Classically and traditionally, dissociative amnesia is seen as a disorder that causes retrograde amnesia in the autobiographical domain in the aftermath of inc...
