  • Alcohol Dementia

    These include poor judgment, loss of balance and motor skills, reduced reaction time, and slurred speech.[] These are the characteristics of anterograde amnesia . Research shows that anterograde amnesia results from a failure of memory formation and storage.[] On the one hand, it certainly fits the criteria of memory loss, the lack of fine motor skills and the inability to learn and retain new information.[]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    However, as MCI progresses to Alzheimer disease, memory loss becomes more severe, and language, perceptual, and motor skills deteriorate.[] Amnesia: A minimal model and an interpretation. In Cermak, L. S. (ed.), Human Memory and Amnesia, Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Hillsdale, NJ, pp. 305–336.[] Eventually almost every domain of cognition will be dismantled, but amnesia remains at the heart of trying to discover the cause of the brain's degeneration.[]

  • Benzodiazepine Overdose

    Benzodiazepine addicts also have a higher risk for developing dementia, an illness affecting the brain that causes gradual memory loss and problems with language and motor[] CONCLUSION: Anterograde amnesia is present in suicide attempters who take overdoses of benzodiazepines.[] It provides anxiolysis, sedation, hypnosis, skeletal muscle relaxation, anterograde amnesia, respiratory depression and an anticonvulsant effect but has no analgesic properties[]

One year later, his gait disturbance worsened, and he developed urinary incontinence.[] CASE REPORT We report a 51-year-old right-handed man with no medical history, who presented an acute onset vascular dementia associated with an antero-retrograde amnesia,[]

  • Parkinson's Disease Type 3

    While the loss of motor skills and stability can be explicitly explained in other cases, doctors often don’t know why the disease came to fruition.[]
