Variable periods: Amnesia can be retrograde ( unable to remember before incident of onset of amnesia) and ante grade meaning not able to remember after incident of onset. Most amnesia is due to a traumatic or severe stressful event and usually lasts a few hours to a few days. Longer periods of amnesia are rare.
