In neurology, anterograde amnesia is a loss of the ability to create new memories after the event that caused amnesia, leading to a partial or complete inability to recall the recent past, while long-term memories from before the event remain intact.

- Anterograde amnesia

Korsakoff syndrome (KS) is a disorder of the central nervous system characterized by amnesia, deficits in explicit memory, and confabulation.

- Korsakoff syndrome

This is in contrast to retrograde amnesia, where memories created prior to the event are lost while new memories can still be created.

- Anterograde amnesia

There are two main types of amnesia: retrograde amnesia and anterograde amnesia.

- Amnesia

This would resemble generic amnesia.

- Retrograde amnesia

Anterograde amnesia is a similar condition that deals with the inability to form new memories following the onset of an injury or disease.

- Retrograde amnesia

RA can also progress and further deteriorate memory recollection, as in the case of Korsakoff syndrome and Alzheimer's disease, due to the ongoing nature of the damage caused by the illnesses.

- Retrograde amnesia

1) anterograde amnesia, memory loss for events after the onset of the syndrome

- Korsakoff syndrome

2) retrograde amnesia, memory loss extends back for some time before the onset of the syndrome

- Korsakoff syndrome

This type of dissociation between declarative and procedural memory can also be found in patients with diencephalic amnesia such as Korsakoff's syndrome.

- Amnesia

Chronic alcoholism often leads to a thiamine (vitamin B1) deficiency in the brain, causing Korsakoff's syndrome, a neurological disorder which is generally preceded by an acute neurological condition known as Wernicke's encephalopathy (WE).
