Memory loss
 
Standard Definition

Memory loss may be a transient experience or a degenerative one as part of a more serious condition such as dementia or Alzheimer's disease. It may occur after a head trauma or simply be a frustrating part of a pregnancy. It is important to assess all factors to achieve a proper diagnosis.

 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

The brain requires many substances for its function, including glucose, fats, amino acids, hormones, minerals and vitamins - all delivered by an effective, intricate blood supply. Anything that upsets brain function may upset the formation and retrieval of memory. Episodes of grief or depression can affect our memory - whether this can be seen as 'memory loss' is debatable, however it illustrates the intricacies of our brain function.
