Details

Riefer, Knapp, Batchelder, Bamber and Manifold (2002) report a study on memory deficits in schizophrenic (n = 29) and organic alcoholic (n = 21) patients who were compared to two matched control groups (n = 25, n = 21). Participants were presented with 20 pairs of semantically related words. In a later memory test, they freely recalled the presented words. This procedure was repeated for a total of six study and test trials. Responses were classified into four categories: both words in a pair are recalled adjacently (E1) or non-adjacently (E2), one word in a pair is recalled (E3), neither word in a pair is recalled (E4).
