Anterograde amnesia interferes with many memory processes such as
a. focusing attention.
b. encoding sensory input.
d. All of these.
Amnesia is a form of memory loss in which a person loses their abilities to either recall old information or to store new information depending on the type they have.
Answer and Explanation:
The correct answer is d. All of these. Anterograde amnesia refers to memory problems that occur after the event or injury that led to the amnesia, i.e. a brain injury like a concussion. A person with anterograde amnesia has difficulties forming new memories after their amnesia occurred. Their attention would be impacted as well as their abilities to process new information and rehearse it for long-term memory.
