In brief: Varies with severity
The extent and duration of memory impairment vary depending on how severe the initial injury was.
Mild injury usually produces temporary symptoms, while more severe cases with damaged brain tissue will cause permanent loss of function. Much will depend on the location of the damaged tissue.
