Allocentric and egocentric memory was investigated in patients with Huntington's disease (HD) and matched controls. Patients with HD and age- and education-matched healthy normal controls (NC) were administered two visuospatial recognition memory tasks, one assessing memory for hand positions (egocentric) and the other assessing memory for spatial locations (allocentric). HD patients showed normal primacy and recency effects, but their overall performance was impaired relative to controls on… CONTINUE READING
