loss of memory

Azania sat down with Head of the Memorycare Clinic Dr Ryan Fuller and Psychiatrist, Dr Lolita Mostert.

We rely on our memory to learn new information and function in daily life but what happens when we start to lose it?

Azania sat down with head of the Memorycare Clinic Dr Ryan Fuller and psychiatrist, Dr Lolita Mostert to understand the purpose of memory and why, for some of us, our memory will fail.

Mostert says memory is quite complex and that it often gets distorted, especially when emotions are involved.

We know that in very traumatic situations, when people have PTSD, often they struggle to recall situations the way they happened. There have been studies done on if we see something happening or if there is an emotional component then you start reliving that and start believing things that actually maybe didn't happen.

Dr Lolita Mostert, Psychiatrist

Fuller explains the process of storing and retrieving memory.

We have a conscious process, we are aware of what we doing and I will save what I want to but most of the days residue is chucked out by the brain. There is a conscious component of what we attend to that we chose to try and remember but then most of the brain is unconsciously active which means you are not immediately aware of what's happening.

Dr Ryan Fuller, Head - Memorycare Clinic

We do actively try and save things and then hopefully we can retrieve them.
