In brief: Here it is

in all the conditions you listed memory is affected.
delirium – often happens in elderly who developed a medical problem. Confusion and memory problems eventually will resolve. Amnesia – a general term to describe memory loss as a result of - - - usually, a head trauma, seizure etc. pre-senile dementia - is a type of permanent memory loss - like, Alzheimer's - started earlier than expected
