Depression can hobble memory, as can alcohol consumption. Some medications can interfere with memory, as can some medical conditions.

Sometimes it's useful to just give the brain a break. “As you get older, it may become more difficult to maintain a high level of attention for several things at once,” Dr. Fabiny says. “Dividing your attention can definitely cause you to think you are having memory problems.”
