Perseveration in memory for figures after frontal lobe lesion.


The aim was to determine whether recurrent perseveration, i.e. the tendency to incorrectly repeat previous responses, is related to the site of cerebral lesion. Sixty-seven brain-damaged patients and 35 control subjects were studied with a modified Benton Visual Retention Test. Patients with anterior lesions made a higher number of recurrent perseverations than patients with posterior lesions. The results was in disagreement with the hypothesis that recurrent perseveration is associated with left posterior lesions.
