    Re: Amnesia

    Do you mean he is pretending not to remember things?

    No, I mean the woman is an extremely wicked wife who decided to cause amnesia in her husband.

    How would she go about doing that? Do you know what amnesia is?

    Amnesia is loss of memory. Is that what you mean?

    I don't see how somebody could cause loss of memory in another person.

    Re: Amnesia

    I asked a doctor about it and she told me that it is quite possible. I really need a native speaker's help with this sentence. She caused/arose amnesia in him.
    Could you please just tell if the sentence is correct?
