Abstract

Because amnesic patients have great difficulty remembering the order in which events occur, anterograde amnesia has sometimes been considered to be a selective defect in this ability. The present study showed that temporal order information is fragile in normal subjects to the same extent as it is in amnesic patients. It is suggested that in many respects amnesic patients qualitatively resemble normal subjects tested long after learning.
