Memory Problems

January 31, 2010

Memory is the ability to store and retrieve information. It is one of the most frequent reasons that people go to a psychologist for an evaluation. There are different causes of memory problems including medical illness, mood and anxiety disorders, and dementias. The best course of action is to first see your primary care physician to rule out medical causes. If no medical cause can be found, then your physician can refer you for neuropsychological testing, which may determine if there is a memory problem, its cause and what may be done to treat it.
