Flashcards in extra stuff for neuro test 2 Deck (11):
Brain areas involved in explicit memory
Basal forebrain, dorsal medial thalamus, parahippocampal formation
Brain areas involved in implicit memory
Motor learning: Motor cortex, basal ganglia, cerebellum
Auditory: auditory cortex
Relationship between hand dominance and language
95% R handers L dominance
60-70% L handers L dominance
Connects broca's and werneke's. Damage to this area produces conduction aphasia.
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
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.
When there is discrepancy between auditory-verbal and visual-graphic recall
Suggests lateralized damage
What does immediate recall test?
Working memory, storage, and retrieval
Lack of awareness of deficits. Only from right hemisphere damage.
Definitive malingering evidence
Below chance performance. Presence of substantial external incentive.
