Abstract / Description of output

Human memory in general and episodic memory in particular is impaired across a wide range of neuropsychological conditions ranging from the moderate impairment with advancing age through to extreme disruption in classic cases of the amnesic syndrome (see reviews in MacPherson & Della Sala, 2019). Perhaps surprisingly however, while problems in encoding and retrieval can readily be demonstrated, whether amnesic patients forget material at a normal rate once it has been acquired is still debated.
