In brief: No relationship

Erb palsy is the result of a stretching and or tearing of the nerves to the arm due to shoulder dystocia.
It should not have anything to do with memory difficulty, unless the diagnosis of Erb palsy is confused with an upper extremity diosrde due to brain injury.

In brief: No

Erb's palsy doesn't involve brain.
So, memory loss has no link to erb's palsy.
