Dementia FAQs

Long Term Memory

Answer

                                                                       LONG TERM MEMORY (LTM)

          LTM’s are those that last for years or even decades.  LTM differs structurally and

          functionally from STM and working memory. STM’s move into LTM via the process of

          potentiation, the process of strengthening the connections between existing neurons to

          improve the effectiveness of their communication.

          LTM’s fade as part of the natural forgetting process, which increases with age,

          stress and illness.  Serious loss of LTM, however, is the result of either TBI, or

          neurodegenerative disease – the most prevalent is alz., dementia, huntingtons

          disease, multiple sclerosis and parkinsons.
