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

Alzheimer ’s disease (AD) (Association et al., 2016; 2017) is the most prevalent dementia and is commonly associated with progressive memory loss and cognitive decline. It is incurable and requires attentive care, thus imposing significant socio-economic burden on many nations. It is thus vital to detect A D in its earliest stage before its onset for possible therapeutic treatment. The prodromal stage of AD, called mild cognitive impairment (MCI), is characterized by mild but measurable decline of memory and cognition.
