Types of Memory Disorders
Memory disorders occur when damage to certain parts of the brain prevents or reduces the ability to store, retain, or remember memories. Memory disorders also impact cognitive capabilities and social behaviours, affecting language, problem-solving skills, and the ability to perform simple tasks. They can range from mild to severe and progressive to immediate.
Trauma, stroke, and other conditions such as an infection or reaction to medicine, can lead to dementia and other memory problems. Dementia affects people of all ages, but is more commonly found in older people.
Types of memory disorders include:
Alzheimer’s disease – The most common form of dementia caused by changes to nerves in the brain that become tangled, form plaques, and lose their connections to other nerves. Alzheimer’s disease gets worse over time.
Vascular dementia – Decreased or blocked blood flow damages brain tissue. This is the second-most common form of dementia after Alzheimer’s disease.
Dementia with Lewy bodies – As brain tissue breaks down, abnormal protein deposits called Lewy bodies form, causing dementia symptoms.
Frontotemporal dementia – A condition that affects nerve cells in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. As the cells die, the lobes shrink.
Mild cognitive impairment – You or your family may notice changes or a decline in your memory, language, thinking or judgments, but this does not interfere with your regular activities.
Mixed dementia – A combination of dementia symptoms caused by Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia.
Memory Disorder Symptoms
Memory problems and dementia from Alzheimer’s disease and other conditions tend to show up in stages as the disease progresses. A sudden onset of symptoms may also occur.
Symptoms may include:
- Inability to communicate
- Inability to learn new things
- Language problems
- Memory loss
- Repeating questions
- Trouble managing money or paying bills
- Trouble with reasoning
- Wandering or getting lost
