Several investigators have shown that memory-impaired patients are capable of learning relatively simple information in both the laboratory and everyday life. The present research explored whether patients with memory disorders could also acquire complex knowledge--the domain-specific knowledge needed for operating and interacting with a microcomputer. The results indicated that patients with memory disorders of varying severity could learn to manipulate information on the computer screen, to… CONTINUE READING
