Anterograde amnesia

What is Anterograde amnesia?

It is loss of the ability to create new memories after the event that caused amnesia, leading to partial or complete inability to recall the recent past. Long-term memories from before the event remain intact. This is in contrast to retrograde amnesia, where memories prior to the event are lost while new memories can still be created. Both can occur together in the same patient.
