Short term memory brain location

Common Questions and Answers about Short term memory brain location


Avatar n tn When you get a headache or migraine (I am no expert) your blood vessles swell and so depending on the location this could put pressure on her short term memory sensors and be causing the disruption...but again, I am no expert. She does need a scan and/or MRI done! The first time I got a migraine my vision got blurry and the doctors thought I was having a stroke...
Avatar n tn I dont know how much alcohol you take but long term alcohol use is associated with short term memory loss and the ability to form new memories (called Korsakoffs syndrome). This is more related to a vitamin deficiency in chronic alcoholics over many years. It is mainly irreversible - so avoid the evils of alcohol if you can.
Avatar n tn I, too have been on Lexapro for a long time and suffer from brain fog and short term memory loss. Finding words can be difficult especially as I am in the mental health field myself and am always going to seminars and learning new things and retaining information is so important. I definitely believe it is the medication, which is very helpful in other ways. It's a really difficult tradeoff to have to make!
Avatar m tn The past six months my short term memory and ability to concentrate are greatly reduced. I remember a much smaller % of this I did just a few years ago. Words are often on the tip of my tongue. I am aware HSV & CMV in conjunction with APOE4 gene can build plaques in the brain causing cognitive decline.
Avatar f tn I'm now having such severe psychiatric symptoms that I was admitted to a short term menta facility about 2 weeks. The Medical Doctor and the Psychiatrist said they think my symptoms are from the cyct. I'm on a high dose of an anti-psychotic to keep me under raps. I'm seeing my neurologist for the first time, so pray it dose well. I still can't really take care of myself ot my children so my sister is here for a few weeks. I'm really wanting them to take it out ASAP.
Avatar f tn During ECT and 6 months after you will have major short term memory loss, and some long term. I am really surprised you are able to come on Medhelp so soon after a treatment. Most people can't handle the computer or electronic devices so soon after. So, I am hoping you see this. Hang up the next 2 sentences in big letters on your bedroom door or bathroom door or have someone tape it to the door for you: The short term and long term memory loss will get better.
Avatar n tn Don't get me wrong I'm still doing things but I definitely notice a correlation between activity and my head hurting, short term memory loss, fatigue and other stuff. My doctor just said come back in a year for another MRA/MRI - which was before I knew someone else in the family had an annie. So my new neurologist is having me go in sooner for the tests just to make sure nothings happening and from there we'll decide how often I need to be checked.
Avatar f tn but the doctor said it could not be from chemicals. he worked with other chemicals but with his short term memory it hard for him to remember. he als smoked a lot of pot.
Avatar n tn He has minimal symptoms as in he has numbness and tingling in left foot, left hand and the left side of his face. He had loss of smell and mild short term memory disruption. He also is on medication for high blood pressure which was the initial diagnosis prior to discover of said haemorrhage. I would like to know if there exists any research that would indicate his long term prognosis. Is there any treatment he should be on, anything he should be doing etc.
1260255 tn?1288658164 This has helped me for many years and the importance of this has been reinforced by having a child who is ADHD. My short term memory has gone way downhill, so that I try to write things like telephone numbers down on my work calendar. Likewise, with appointments and meetings, I automatically put them into Outlook, with reminders to pop up. At home, I write things down on a calendar. I used to be able to rely on memory for all of this. Not so anymore.
Avatar f tn Lately, I've also noticed a strange amount of short-term memory loss. I used to pride myself on my ability to remember entire conversations almost word-for-word, but now, I've had friends telling me about chats that I don't even remember having at all. There are entire chunks of days that I honestly cannot recall - completely lost time.
Avatar m tn Nine if I include the head of the psychology department who was providing support during a transition of T's. It sounds like a lot. Some are because I changed location and some left themselves. Out of all those T's, I had one really good one who I made progress with, several mediocre ones and the rest were rubbish (didn't help at all, or not much). You need to find a T who you feel comfortable talking too and who you can work with.
Avatar n tn I vaguely remember that entire weekend and since that time, have had memory lapses - mostly short term. I had an EEG which was normal, and 3 MRIs. The first was a basic MRI, the second I was injected with a dye to show the flow of blood, left and then was called and asked to return later that day for a "special MRI". The 2nd MRI showed a tumor on my right lobe.
755404 tn?1337703895 now, i can speak well (for the most part), but i still have trouble with my short term memory. sometimes i will be in the middle of something and completely forget what i was doing, or saying. occasionaly, my right hand starts to tingle and my grip weakens when i am lifting things. can anyone tell me if this is normal after this length of time since surgery, and how long will it continue? or will it not ever get better? also, i started to have pretty bad headaches again around christmas time.
1225331 tn?1333369369 I had told my MS neuro last time I met with him that I had noticed changes in my memory and attention. I'm NEVER forgetful, but recently my short term memory isn't functioning like it used to function. It was definitely enough for me to take notice of it. He ordered a cognitive functioning test for me, but the doctor who does them is switching hospitals, so they're not going to start taking appts with him until Jan. 1st.
Avatar f tn In my case IT WAS THE MEDICATION that caused the memory loss. Every time I stoped taking it the memory came back and every time I got back on it I had short term memory loss. I couldn't do anything. Wouldn't remember what the person told me 2 seconds ago. Unfortunately I had to stick with antidepressants for 1.5 years (well, at least so the doctor told me, in retrospect I should never have kept taking them) and now I have been off them for about 8 months.
Avatar n tn Electroencephalogram helps to define the location of seizure activity in the brain. Please make sure that he takes complete bed rest. Temporal lobe epilepsy usually results in memory loss. Anxiety, stress, high BP, low blood sugar, sleep deprivation can cause dizziness and loss of memory, since all the neurological causes have been ruled out. Please schedule an appointment with his neurologist and discuss these issues with him. Keep us posted!
Avatar n tn it also talked about it can ruin your short term memory. it really messes with the part of your brain that functions when your learning something. (yeah, when your trying to learn something, anything, new.) it burns out certain receptors in ur brain and neurons dont fire like they used to. dxm basically puts your mind through a blender if you use it even moderately in higher doses than the label recommends. anyways i was relieved to find out the damage is mostly reversible.
Avatar f tn I have dizzeness, severe headaches and pain, and always feel like im under water or in a fog. Oh ya I stammer a lot and have memory loss and am so very tired and just wiped out. Sometimes I dont see things right. When will this all end? Can someone tell me what kind of meds works best for the pain in the head. I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain. Now I have pain on the right side (tumor was left frontal).
Avatar m tn She has no issue sitting up, standing up and walking to the bathroom but when she comes from, she sometimes has these body tremors. We did try to go for a short walk also but didn't make it far and also after she got out of the shower, she nearly fell over. She also gets a slight headache when this happens, though the tremors and headaches don't last long - she lays down for 3-5 minutes and they're gone.
724734 tn?1230944872 Hello everyone, 25/M About a year ago I began experiencing some strange sensations which I sometimes have trouble finding the words to describe, but their presence is definitely there regardless. In a nutshell my symptoms seem to be fatigue, lightheadedness, "brain fog", trouble focusing, numbness and generally just feeling disconnected. I'm "not there" so to speak, both physically and mentally.
Avatar f tn Im sorry for not getting back to all of you I had a bad week. I was referred to a new Dr as mine was retiring and this Dr doesnt believe in Narcotics so I was taken off the vicodin--cold turkey. this Dr would not even give me enough to taper off. The only thing that works for the pain but what was worse was the withdrawls for 3 days. Needless to say I am seeing a new Dr this week.
Avatar f tn My doctor is pretty sure I have benign chorea disease. The Huntington's has already come back negative, but this, headaches, hearing loss, & short term memory loss are why I had the MRI done. I don't go back to see him till next week, but it is making me crazy not knowing what this MRI report means.
Avatar m tn I also feel fatigued and have lot of problems with concentrating and my short term memory, as well as my long term memory has worsened beyond my own comprehension. I've been to a neurologist, all of my basic cognitive and motor functions are normal. And EEG showed nothing either. I'm getting an MRI soon and am very afraid of a tumor somewhere in my frontal lobe. I've also suspected it might be Candida, as I fit most of the symptoms.
Avatar f tn My memory became coming back after a few minutes but I know since that time I have had to work harder at short term memory in order to study etc. Could this be a cause? I have seen a lot of info of CA etc but wondered if could you elaborate on benign reasons for calcifications? I am to be followed up in several months with another MRI so I am in good hands but I would still like to understand more about this situation.
Avatar n tn I am experiencing short term memory problems(e.g., forgetting words, sometimes not putting a sentence together correctly, moments of not remembering where things are located) as well as slowed cognitive functioning (someone will say something and it takes a while to comprehend; I have trouble catching up to what they are saying). A brief history: When I was younger(early to late twenty's) I use to experience "explosions" in my head. It litterally sounded like a bomb went off.
Avatar n tn Gosh I can never keep it short, that's just me I guess. P.
Avatar n tn Mostly its not being able to remember what you went in to another room for, or getting out of the shower and finding you forgot to rinse out the conditioner, shaving one leg only, or forgetting you left the water running, stuff like that. Just short-circuiting all kindsa ways. I had these brain farts before tx but its worse now. I know I read somewhere where it affects your menstrual cycle, but of course cant remember where. Lotsa luck to us all!! I want my brain back!!
Avatar f tn I feel off-balanced most of the time, have trouble concentrating (usually when under fluorescent lighting, I think), have memory problems (mostly short-term, but long-term as well), have had a few episodes where I smelled things other people didn't smell, have trouble remembering words and often will type the wrong word, have pressure or pain in my chest a lot, sometimes have shaky hands (this used to happen a lot more often, now it only happens once in a blue moon or when I get really scared a
Avatar n tn currently she can talk and walk with the help of the walker and also she has short-term memory loss (but she can remember important things). +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Sounds like your girlfriend has been through alot. As you may know astrcytomas are rare tumors but common primary brain tumors. They are graded based on characteristics seen under the microscope.
