Many causes: The common causes of memory loss are usually metabolic developments found in older peoples' brains. When a young man suffers marked memory loss, head trauma, drugs abuse and induced severe hypoglycemia, must be at the top of your list. Remember those cases of amnesia reported that happen, because of intent to treat to cause amnesia.
