The aim of this study was to investigate long-term consequences of severe non-missile traumatic brain injury (nmTBI) in patients without macroscopic focal brain lesions (>1.6 cm(3)) on regional white-matter density (WMd), and possible correlations with days of coma and memory performances. T1-weighted magnetic-resonance images (MRI) were acquired in 19(More)
This study evaluated the serial position curve based on free recall of spatial position sequences. To evaluate the memory processes underlying spatial recall, some manipulations were introduced by varying the length of spatial sequences (Exp. 1) and modifying the presentation rate of individual positions (Exp. 2). A primacy effect emerged for all sequence(More)
This study investigated the hypothesis that brain damaged patients with memory disorder are poorer at remembering the semantic than the perceptual attributes of information. Eight patients with memory impairment of different etiology and 24 patients with chronic consequences of severe closed-head injury were compared to similarly sized age- and(More)
