Quoted From: https://www.jocelynfitzgerald.com/blog-jocelyn-fitzgerald/can-trauma-cause-memory-loss

"Impact on Memory Function:
Traumatic experiences can disrupt the normal functioning of the brain, particularly the areas responsible for memory formation and retrieval. Studies have shown that high levels of stress hormones, such as cortisol, released during trauma can interfere with the encoding and storage of memories. This can result in fragmented or distorted recollections of the traumatic event."
