Title: Acquisition and transfer of word processing skill by an amnesic patient

Research Design: Single Case Design

The present study demonstrates that an amnesiac patient was able to acquire a considerable amount of declarative and procedural knowledge about a word processing task and subsequently use it independently in his home environment. He was, however, unable to reflect upon what he had learned or to produce the learned information to changed cues. His learning was thus strongly cue-dependent and may have been achieved through an intact perceptual representation system, semantic memory system, and/or procedural memory system.
