Dissociative amnesia

It is a complete loss of the notions of time and memory, usually linked to traumatic events, severe stress or even catastrophes (including earthquakes or floods). The fact that they are thinking about anti-abandonment seats, ready to make noise if the adult leaves the child alone in the car, makes us understand the extent of a scourge that is having worse results from year to year. “This is a circumscribed amnesia, in which the person is not able to remember what happened in a few hours”, said Claudio Mencacci, director of the Department of Neuroscience at the Fatebenefratelli Hospital and Ophthalmic Hospital in Milan.
