Example text

In my experience, two aspects of memory for paragraph material are particularly worth bearing in mind. First, a further, delayed recall for the story material will usually offer a more sensitive measure of memory functioning than simply using immediate recall performance. In fact, it may be preferable to administer story recall in such a way that only delayed recall is tested. g. ), and to administer an unexpected recall test after a delay of 30 minutes. A limitation of this method of memory testing is that it is mainly of use in a 'one-off assessment with repeat testing, many subjects will obviously be aware that delayed recall will be assessed and may rehearse material in the intervening period.

Even though items in the various lists were matched for word frequency, the first form yielded lower scores than the remaining three forms. Improvement was evident on repeat testing from week one to week two, but not on the two following repeat assessments. However, their data were derived from college students, and it remains to be seen if the normative data described in their paper generalizes to clinical populations. The Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test is another list-learning task for which alternative forms have been constructed.

In the case of personal topics, it is important to gather corroborative evidence from a close relative, and to be aware that recall of personal life events may sometimes be faulty in normal subjects (Jenkins, Hurst and Rose, 1979; Bradburn, Rips and Shevell, 1987). It may be useful to obtain this type of information beforehand and then confront the patient with some questions relating specifically to the personal episodes in question. Barbizet (1970) has described some of the events, which may be usefully sampled in this way.
