Long term memory in infants

Common Questions and Answers about Long term memory in infants


173939 tn?1333221450 There are those who have very clear long term memory, some are kind of in the middle, and some have really good short term memories. I've lived in this same house since 1987, and my now 18 year old has brought kids over to the house who had been here ages ago - in their preschool years and not ever since. From playgroup days. Some of the kids say oh I remember this house, and they name a detail that is true.
1394262 tn?1369628792 That's a really good question that I don't have an answer to. I would guess the conscience memory doesn't last long because infants don't have much for long term memory but the un conscience memory probably lasts a while.
Avatar m tn I understand your concern about the neurological sequelae but it is important to note that the history of this episode may be important for some minor issues like say delayed grasp power, memory or some minor learning disability later in life. So it is important to note that there has been an episode of acidosis (the reasons for which are currently unknown) which can occur again under periods of stress (like metabolic defects which present with acidosis and get precipitated with stress).
Avatar n tn I write and make movies and I feel that my mental clarity and memory is still very good in my life if not better than it's ever been before. So I feel this could all be a part of our spiritual evolutions as humans but it is still nice to here that those brain scans came back good, lol. Please feel free to laugh at my way of looking at it and it could be way off. But it's what I feel. Thanks for sharing and letting me share as well.
162948 tn?1205256292 It does appear to be common to have pregnancy symptoms once it is removed, but I feel (in my case) that it may be due to my lining still too thin, and the pregnancy doesn't last long. Hopefully in another month or so, I'll get my positive sign. =) To all of you out there in "pregnancy limbo", it will happen when it happens, and it's best not to stress about it. Just pay attention to your body signs, and keep trying!
Avatar n tn Mine only last for a minute or so and during this i feel very sick and quite dizzy and sometimes feel like im about to collapse. Its happened for as long as i can remember. I'm just worrying that its having long term damage on my brain, nerves or similar. I know no one else who has this so i am really glad to find others like myself! Hope this gets a medical diagnosis sometime soon.
Avatar n tn This is a normal bacteria for the anogenital area. It becomes an issue in pregnancy, mainly for the infants sake. I don't know if it's ever something that needs to be treated in a non pregnant woman. Maybe if it sort of took over? Just like yeast is also a normal inhabitant of the female genital tract, if there is an imbalance and it overtakes the normal flora, you get symptomatic. Maybe group B strep is the same.
Avatar f tn "...Palin would be too dumb to understand..." And I used the term "Obamacare", as it's referred to that way, in almost all media outlets that I've seen. Are you implying that I used the term "Obamacare" in an effort to shed a negative light on said program? EVERYONE calls it Obamacare... even the President himself makes reference to it. Maybe I'm not understanding what you're saying... please, elaborate & clarify.
Avatar n tn because the the leg/hip cramps are severe and constant and worse than any long-term pain I've ever had. I wonder if it's as simple as a deficiency? It's been very debilitating and I've even lost weight just because it's too much trouble to go get something to eat. I work and I limit my "upright" time to what I have to do, which is when the pain returns.
1694492 tn?1372906594 the anamnestic response after administration of a booster dose, infection rate in vaccinated populations, in vitro B and T cell activity testing, and seroepidemiological studies. Long-term protection is present despite a decrease in anti-hepatitis B surface antibodies over time. The exact mechanism of long-term protection, however, is not yet fully understood.
Avatar f tn It's them in particular. Get over yourself. I've used the term for a long time and it is directed to individuals/not necessarily women, who seem rather bull-headed and ignorant. They fit the bill.... Have you worked cows, OH? Do it and you'll understand an honest days work. You'll also figure out that heifers are pretty hard to deal with.... You can take offense, but why? Nobody called you anything and I was not stereotyping women....
Avatar m tn ( I said Soy wasn't good for men and woman for a number of years! Only fermented soy is OK! Soy is in everything. I have seen it listed in the ingredients on a box of tea.) Eating too many simple carbs can lead to weight gain, and increased body flab has been shown to raise a man’s estrogen levels and lower testosterone. According to a University of Buffalo study printed in the journal Diabetes Care, 40 percent of obese participants had lower-than-normal testosterone readings.
Avatar m tn The soy-fed rats also produced significantly more cortisol with stress, excess cortisol damages the hippocampus the part of the brain concerned with memory, learning, and behavior. In 2004, Neal Simon, a professor of behavioral neuroscience, and his co-workers tested long-term, soy-based diet (including high- and medium dose soy protein isolates) against soy-free diets in monkeys.
Avatar n tn I recall long time ago in this forum someone talked about earplugs that you can get at a sporting goods store that are particularly good for people who have to wear them a lot. I hope your good wife's memory came back to some degree after her operation, but these things do happen despite knowledgeable doctors. I sympathize with you so much, and I wish you and your family strength to cope with the situation.
1437406 tn?1283842910 Go to the hospital and have the d&c done. It will be easier in the long run. I started having trouble with my pregnancy and went to ER and they came to a nonclusive decision about what was happening with my pregnancy, they did not feel positive after testing, yet sent me home to with plans to wait and see until Mon when I could f/u with OB (was a sat). Late that night I went into labor and had a difficult time with delivery of my baby at 17 weeks.
Avatar n tn I can find general side effects, but cannot find them pertaining to children. I also want to know how safe this drug is and about the long term effects. My doctor says it is safe even for infants. My son was put on Clonidine first before Mellaril. This drug made him too sleepy. We are trying the Mellaril suspension liquid at .2 to .4 mg. to try. What can you tell me about this drug that may help me. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Why would the Feds say how bad pot is, yet say they don't know long term effects and can only assume what it will do in the long term? It is because there has never been a govt. sponsered study on pot. Highlights from the book Marijuana Myths, Marijuana Facts: A Review of the Scientific Evidence. By Drs. Lynn Zimmer and John Morgan. New York: The Lindesmith Center, 1997. Myth: Marijuana's Harms Have Been Proved Scientifically.
Avatar m tn What his study showed is that in low dose long term exposure levels that humans are typically exposed to parabens can accumulate intact in the body. From what I can tell, they tested 20 women’s breast tumors and found a substantial amount of live intact parabens in all of them. To my understanding the debate comes into play as to why no healthy breast tissues without tumors were tested as a control to determine whether the ones with tumors had higher levels of parabens.
Avatar n tn Further follow-up studies are required to clarify whether memory B and T lymphocytes can provide protection in chronic hepatitis C patients in the absence or inadequate titers of anti-HBs. Here's the link: <ahref="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/queryd.fcgi?
Avatar n tn and 3) it flows between the cranium and spine to regulate changes in pressure within the brain. Hydrocephalus can occur at any age, but is most common in infants and adults age 60 and older. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, hydrocephalus is believed to affect approximately one in every 500 children. The majority of these cases are often diagnosed before birth, at the time of delivery, or in early childhood.
Avatar m tn •Daily medications such as propafenone, flecainide, moricizine, sotalol, and amiodarone. •Pacemakers to override the fast heartbeat; very occasionally used in children with PSVT who have not responded to any other treatment. •Radiofrequency catheter ablation; currently the treatment of choice for most PSVTs. •Surgery to change the pathways in the heart that send electrical signals; this may be recommended in some cases for people who need other heart surgery.

Avatar f tn The only long term effect I am aware of is with untreated infants with hypothyroidism, which can cause physical and mental problems. With adults, I think I would choose to believe scientific information rather than anecdotal. Perhaps there was another problem that the woman thought was a residual effect from the hypothyroidism. I know I have had hypothyroidism for well over 40 years and I was not diagnosed for quite a while and then under treated until 8 years ago.
Avatar n tn In some European countries indeed mothers used to give their infants a sip of wine or apple cider or beer once in a while but that was in the 1940s or 50s. We should know better now. Mind you, my co-worker would give her infant tylenol to make him sleep longer. If you don`t want to raise a storm right away, how about you print articles on alcohol during infancy from the web. You can give your son a chance to educate himself.
Avatar m tn Other symptoms often experienced months to years before the onset of AIDS include Lack of energy Weight loss Frequent fevers and sweats Persistent or frequent yeast infections (oral or vaginal) Persistent skin rashes or flaky skin Pelvic inflammatory disease in women that does not respond to treatment Short-term memory loss Some people develop frequent and severe herpes infections that cause mouth, genital, or anal sores, or a painful nerve disease called shingles.
649848 tn?1484935765 Increasingly, evidence supports the latter view. Long-term use is associated with anatomical abnormalities in the parts of the brain rich in cannabinoid receptors, and cannabis appears to significantly increase the risk of serious psychiatric illnesses such as schizophrenia and psychosis. The Future We believe that the future medical role for cannabinoid drugs lies with chemically modified extracts, not with unprocessed plants.
Avatar f tn Anytime I receive something like this, written in that panicky, hysterical tone, I hit delete. Lots of CAPS! and EXCLAMATION POINTS is my first CLUE! lol Show me the extensive, long term, controlled studies done by reputable institutions. That's what I'm interested in. And I don't necessarily always buy what they conclude either, but at least when there is evidence of some solid science behind certain claims, they are worthy of consideration.
617441 tn?1221179806 Wasn't so long ago that people poured butter on burns. By all means give them fish oil and maybe it will help in the long run, but please do not allow someone to coerce you into believing that fish oil is better than science. Accupuncture, kinoki foot pads, and intestinal flushes are all a wash and I put fish oil into that group.
Avatar n tn Hi: I am glad you found the article; it is the one I was trying to lead you to. From everything I read, transmitting the virus to a child seems to be very low risk. Unfortunately, my 12-year-old daughter is infected; apparently at birth. I had no idea until this year about my being infected. I too was probably infected at birth from an exchange transfusion for RH disease. After doing a lot of reading on the subject it seems that transmission risk increases if the mother is HIV positive.
467707 tn?1270932240 Many of them never feel sick and don't know they have it, but those who become infected as children are more likely to have long-term health problems such as cirrhosis and liver cancer. About 2,000 to 4,000 Americans die from hepatitis B-related illness every year. "The HBV vaccine was introduced in 1982 and became part of the recommended immunization schedule in the United States in 1991.
