Memory is defined as the higher mental functions, allowing the central nervous system (CNS) learn information, store it, and use to solve daily life problems.
Physiological memory has a highly organized structure regarding cell-molecular interactions, where except of ionic (macro- and microelement) processes are protein-producing biological reactions.The intracellular protein molecule is considered as the main storage of memorizing, where external input information in the form of compressed projection is stored and the presence of active or passive request of the higher nervous activity it is presented outside by decoded impulse. One example of simple references can serve as a mechanism for the imposition of real or imaginary image to an existing assembly in cells, which gives a sense of references to certain information.
It will conclude if there is no specific information in memory, it cannot be mentioned.
However, at non-physiological, sick states or at certain pre-existing diseases the information can be “lost” or not stored in the form of the protein molecule.
The loss or decline of memory is not necessarily related to the destruction of brain tissue, such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, encephalitis, brain tumors and others.
Neurons with protein memory are tied by shoots with other neurons. Each long centered shoot (axon) has a number (1000-10000) of connections with other similar cells, called synapses.
Thus, memory loss can be caused not only by neuron lesion or by its death, but the decrease in the number of synapses, neurons functioning, thereby blocking out relevant information.
Synapses, in turn, also can work bad or die. In both cases, synapses recovery is provided by nature and with the right approach to the treatment they restore their function.
It should be noted that even in morphologically preserved neurons and their synapses memory loss still occurs. The reason for this is a violation of formation, selection or return (reverse capture) of chemical transmitter of information (neurotransmitter) which has the function of quantitative and qualitative information from the transmitter memory.
Finally, the level of loss of memory depends on the person, as the process of remembering is active and requires sufficient own tension as attention, motivation, imagination and other basic mental functions. The absence of these conditions leads to reducing of memory function.
Also there are many diseases that affect the central nervous system changing its work towards the violation of many functions including memory function. Pathogenetic mechanism described above provides a universal way for correcting that put by nature vie the cardiovascular system. The heart, in this case works as a pump, and the vessels – as biological tubes, for which energy is delivered to blood and bio structural material to neurons, providing the memory function.
Vascular and / or heart failure reduces blood flow to the brain tissue, reducing blood glucose, oxygen, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other substances on the one hand, and on the other it does not remove waste material from brain tissue, creating extremely unfavorable conditions including for memory. This mechanism also explains low- or ineffectiveness of many known drugs to improve memory.
What check-ups should you make?
The required check-ups in case of memory decrease includes:
– EEG (electroencephalography);
– ECG (electrocardiography with Cardiovisors);
– Ultrasound doppler diagnostics of blood vessels in the neck and head (USDG), endocrine glands and internal organs;
– VST (vascular screening technology);
– Review of a neurologist;
– Consultation with a psychologist;
– According to the detected accompanying symptoms you should make: general blood test; urine analysis; consultation with a physician and other clinical research.
The check-up results give a complete picture of the origin and nature of memory loss. According to the experts’ consultation we choose the most efficient and fast treatment tactic regarding working regime of the patient, his individual personality characteristics and, in fact, requests for the treatment.
Ways of reducing the memory worsening?
The easiest way – to relax from overload or restrict mental and physical activity after infectious diseases.
Most memory loss occurs during prolonged progressing so-called subclinical pathology when at first and largely blood flow is reduced in microvessels. At first the memory worsening removes quickly. But gradually periods and frequent memory becomes increasingly worse. It lasts until finally memory loss disturbs professional and personal functions.
And the hardest cause – organic CNS lesions with loss of large numbers of neurons, providing memory and attention.
In this case you must take courses of intensive treatment to stop the deepening of hypomnesia and gradual recovery of memory function.
How effectively to deal with the memory worsening?
The treatment must include 3 areas:
- Drug correction of changes in the cardiovascular, central nervous and endocrine systems.
- Non-medicated correction of neural and psychological abnormalities.
- The hardware planned monitoring of treatment
Forecast for treatment of low memory
According to data of our Clinic, developer of the individual comprehensive hemodynamic correction of the memory loss, the sustainable achievement and fixing arterio-venous vascular and neural and psychological balance the pathological sleepiness significantly is reduced or completely stopped for a long time and follwong recommendations it is not regressing for years.
