Our expert says:
I can't readily think of what this odd term might be. Could he have been talking of difficulty in RECALL, that is, in remembering ? But that wouldn't be a diagnosis, just another description of the complaint she arrived with. Mos significant causes of memory loss are organic / physical, and would be best dealt with by a neurologist or at least a psychiatrist ; a psychologist would rarely be my first thought in TREATING memory loss, though they can do some tests that clarify what type of memoruy loss it is, and how severe it is. I think you and your mom needs to ask the psychologist to explain more clearly ( that was his job, anyway ) and perhaps jot it down in writing for you.
