Encoding-related brain activity and accelerated forgetting in transient epileptic amnesia

Abstract:

The accelerated forgetting of newly learned information is common amongst patients with epilepsy and, in particular, in the syndrome of transient epileptic amnesia (TEA). However, the neural mechanisms underlying accelerated forgetting are poorly understood. It has been hypothesised that interictal epileptiform activity during longer retention intervals disrupts normally established memory traces. Here, we tested a distinct hypothesis–that accelerated forgetting relates to the abnormal encodi...
