Korsakoff's Psychosis

Definition of Korsakoff's Psychosis:

Korsakoff's psychosis, a disorder stemming from destruction of nerve fibers connecting brain cells, is a serious neurological/psychiatric disorder seen in advanced alcoholism.  It stems from the effects of the acetaldehyde that builds up in the liver and spills over into the bloodstream, where it creates free radicals that cause damage throughout the body.  In the brain it can impair cellular communication by injuring the nerve fibers connecting cells.
