Wonder if anyone has experienced these symptoms. My brother (56) has Korsakoff's and starts to stutter very badly when he gets confused about an appointment almost like he is having a panic attack. It only lasts a few minutes then subsides. I searched the forums but can't find any examples of this intermittent behaviour.

Hi, I believe that the amnesia associated with the Korsakoffs brings on speech problem/aphasia, due to the damage to the brain. It can be intermittent and almost seem like the person is intoxicated, but is a behaviour associated with the Korsakoffs.
