Two ways: When people are depressed sometimes their ability to concentrate is impaired resulting in troubles with memory. This type of memory problem should correct when the depression is treated. Also with some memory problems like Alzheimer's disease depression can also occur. In those patients treating the depression may not improve memory problems.
