There is ongoing debate about whether performance on tests of recognition memory can remain preserved after hippocampal damage. In the present study, we report F.R.G., a patient who became severely amnesic following herpes simplex encephalitis. Although F.R.G. failed all tests involving recall and verbal recognition, she obtained normal performance on a wide number of tests evaluating visual recognition memory (14 of 18 different tests). Her performance was independent of various factors, such… CONTINUE READING
