Can plaque formation in the white matter of the brain make you forgetful?

I was told there was plaque building in the white matter of my brain. I've become increasingly forgetful. Could this be a symptom?

I do not think that plaque formation in the white matter of your brain makes you forgetful. Being forgetful could be caused by several things including but not limited to stress, excessive work load, too many kids, too much on your schedule for the day or just plain forgetting things.

Senile plaque formation is an age-related problem causing forgetfulness,abnormal movements etc. But if the symptoms are severe and cannot be attributed to simple age related changes it will need through evaluation.
