The Neuropsychology of Autobiographical Memory

  • Walter F. Daniel
Part of the Human Neuropsychology book series (HN)


Memory deficits are among the most debilitating consequences of brain injury and disease. They affect many aspects of daily living and can seriously disrupt an individual’s ability to function independently (Glisky, Schacter, & Tulving, 1986). Associated with a variety of neurological conditions, including closed-head injury, electroconvulsive therapy, Alzheimer’s disease, Korsakoff’s disease, encephalitis, anoxia, cerebral tumors, etc., memory disorders are as yet poorly understood and have proven largely resistant to remediation. In recent years, however, it has become increasingly evident that even severely amnesic patients can be taught perceptual, motor, and cognitive tasks (see reviews by Brooks & Baddeley, 1976; Baddeley, 1982; Parkin, 1982; Warrington & Weiskrantz, 1982: Cohen, 1984; Schacter, 1985, 1987a, 1987b; Shimamura, 1986; Squire, 1987; Booker & Schacter, this volume) (also see Table 1), in some cases comparable to that by control subjects (e.g., Cohen & Squire, 1980).
