1 doctor agrees
In brief: Amnesia = memory los
The "human amnestic syndrome" includes varying degrees of anterograde amnesia (can't learn and recall new information post onset), retrograde amnesia (loss of varying degrees of information from the past, before the onset of the amnesia) and normal powers of attention and language and spatial functions.
Amnesia can be material specific - verbal only or non-verbal only- if only one-sided injury.
