Flashcards in extra stuff for neuro test 2 Deck (11):
1

Brain areas involved in explicit memory

Basal forebrain, dorsal medial thalamus, parahippocampal formation

2

Brain areas involved in implicit memory

Motor learning: Motor cortex, basal ganglia, cerebellum

Visual: occipital

Auditory: auditory cortex

3

Relationship between hand dominance and language

95% R handers L dominance

60-70% L handers L dominance

4

Arcuate Fasiculus

Connects broca's and werneke's. Damage to this area produces conduction aphasia.

5

If someone has average immediate recall, impaired delay recall, and impaired recognition recall....

Typical of damage to medial and lateral temporal lobe structures. Suggests problems with consolidation / storage

6

If someone has impaired immediate recall, low average delay with high proportion retained, and low average or better recognition...

Typical of depression or subcortical damage. Suggests problems with encoding.

7

When there is discrepancy between auditory-verbal and visual-graphic recall

Suggests lateralized damage

8

What does immediate recall test?

Working memory, storage, and retrieval

9

Agnoagnosia

Lack of awareness of deficits. Only from right hemisphere damage.

10

Definitive malingering evidence

Below chance performance. Presence of substantial external incentive.

11

Reliable digit span

Longest forward +longest backward. If less than 7, malingering is likely.
