Lacunar amnesia – Memory loss about specific event.

Posted on

Lacunar amnesia is the loss of memory about one specific event. It leaves a gap in the record of memory in the cortex region of the brain. The is due to the brain damage to the limbic system which control our memories and emotions.

Scientists believe memories are captured and stored by the hippocampus and the amygdala.People with hippocampus damage, are incapable of forming long-term memories can still form subconscious memories of traumatic events if their amygdala is intact. Someone suffering from the Memento condition would have a feeling of general unease encountering a person who had harmed them in the past.
