Causes of forgetfulness are difficult to pinpoint. People often forget the things which are not so interesting. Forgetfulness in old age is the result of a degeneration of brain-cells. Forgetting (retention loss) refers to apparent loss of information already encoded and stored in an individual's long term memory. It is a spontaneous or gradual process in which old memories are unable to be recalled. Forgetting can be reduced by repetition or more elaborate cognitive processing of information.
