We describe our investigations of MNA, who had a progressive, severe and global loss of semantic knowledge (semantic dementia). Her verbal vocabulary was restricted to a few common words and she was also unable to recognize common objects from sight. By contrast, she had a well-preserved digit span (7–8 digits). In this series of experiments, we focused on her ability to repeat lists and sentences in which familiarity, meaningfulness, morphology and syntactic structure were manipulated. In list… Expand
