Clustering by alcoholic Korsakoff patients.

Journal Article

Twelve alcoholic Korsakoff patients and 12 alcoholic controls recalled two clusterable lists, and two nonclusterable lists. Korsakoff patients recalled more from the clusterable than the nonclusterable lists. Detailed analysis of the Korsakoff results indicate that while some forms of semantic organization are impaired, the ability to use associative structure remains intact. © 1981.
