Abstract:

Neurocognitive studies of multiple sclerosis (MS) have identified a robust long-term memory deficit. We hypothesized that this is due in part to the limited representation and use of serial order information. MS patients and controls were studied with a supraspan list learning procedure with post-encoding retrieval and recognition trials. MS patients demonstrated post-encoding negative recency with normal recognition, and word order recall was impaired. These findings appear to be in part to difficulty using temporal order cues in long-term memory. Two dissociable memory deficits were identified, suggesting that there are at least two neurocognitive mechanisms underlying memory impairment in MS.
