Infantile Amnesia

Rushabh S Kamdar [2]


Abstract: Childhood amnesia which is also called as infantile amnesia, is the inability of adults to receive and revive episodic memories which are memories of various events which comes under declarative memory, before the age of about 24 years, as well as the period before age 10 of which adults retain fewer memories than might be expected of them. A detailed screening of 12 of these articles was done. This finding highlights the importance of considering what the term forgetting actually meansis it merely the absence of behavioral expression or is it when even implicit effects on later performance are no longer observable. We suggest that forgetting, at least nonreversible and permanent forgetting, occurs when both of these characteristics are observed.
