ORGANIC REPRESSION

a retroactive type of amnesia wherein the patient might not be able to remember occurrences before the injury even though examiners are not able to find a personal motive for the amnesia, like the type of repression seen in patients with dissociative amnesia.

ORGANIC REPRESSION: "Organic repression is not necessarily a voluntary action, but is not generally caused by outside influences either."
