Background: List-learning tasks are frequently used to provide measures of “executive functions” that are believed necessary for successful memory performance. Small sample sizes, confounding anomia, and incomplete representation of all frontal regions have prevented consistent demonstration of distinct regional frontal effects on this task. Objective: To confirm specific effects of lesions in different frontal regions. Subjects: Forty-one patients with chronic focal frontal lesions and 38… CONTINUE READING
