Initial findings

Transient Epileptic Amnesia (TEA)

“Transient amnesia” refers to repeated attacks of memory loss.

Accelerated Long-term Forgetting (ALF)

Accelerated long-term forgetting (ALF) may be described as the abnormally rapid loss of recently learned material from memory.

Autobiographical Amnesia

People with TEA often notice a patchy but persistent loss of memories of events from their past lives. This difficulty in retrieving memories of significant events, such as weddings and holidays, is a form of “autobiographical amnesia”.
