Defination of Short Term Memory Loss.
Short-term memory: A system for temporarily storing and managing information required to carry out complex cognitive tasks such as learning, reasoning, and comprehension. Short-term memory is involved in the selection, initiation, and termination of information-processing functions such as encoding, storing, and retrieving data.
One test of short-term memory is memory span, the number of items, usually words or numbers, that a person can hold onto and recall. In a typical test of memory span, an examiner reads a list of random numbers aloud at about the rate of one number per second. At the end of a sequence, the person being tested is asked to recall the items in order. The average memory span for normal adults is 7.
Short-term memory is also termed recent or working memory.
You have moderate short-term memory problems
You tend to forget things a little more than you should. This could be due to common problems like hormonal fluctuations, stress, an inadequate diet, low blood sugar or not enough exercise. The problem could also be age-related. Memory retrieval slows down as you get older, but this doesn't mean the memories aren't still there
-- you may just need to work harder to remember them.
Yes, I do have this symptoms. believe me, I will sometimes forget about you guys. Even about myself. What I'm doing yesterday, last night, or about 5-10 minutes ago. So, please don't blame me, if I keep asking about you guys. Haha.
