Clinical types of early dementia

We are all aware of what we call “senior moments”- where we can’t recall the names of people we have known in the past -only to recall the name at a later date- usually before the end of the discussions. On occasion this may take several hours or only after a nights sleep

There is another more frustrating type  of amnesia- where the clinical feature  is a  failure to recall or include a constructive idea or thesis which would offers an excellent solution to the problem under  discussion.- to the scientist it is called the eureka moment. That is why they say that scientists make their greatest contribution to research in their earlier years of their research career.
