Memory disorders resulting from head injuries can be very distressing to both patients and carers. Understanding memory processes can be helpful in selecting the best memory strategies for particular patients. These strategies are discussed together with definitions of amnesic conditions and memory aids. The important message from using such memory strategies is that patients learning how to improve their poor memory have a far greater chance of improvement in the long term than those who simply rehearse items to be memorised.
