Retroactive Amnesia

Retroactive Amnesia

Retroactive amnesia is the inability to retrieve or recall information before the traumatic event. An individual who has suffered a bump to his head and now cannot remember his telephone number would be suffering from retroactive amnesia. The other type of amnesia, anterograde amnesia, is when an individual cannot retain any information after the traumatic event.
