BARKER, L. A., ANDRADE, J. and ROMANOWSKI, C. A. J. (2004). Impaired implicit cognition with intact executive function after extensive bilateral prefrontal pathology: a case study. Neurocase, 10 (3), 233-248.Full text not available from this repository.
LR has extensive bilateral pathology to prefrontal cortices after head injury and marked changes to interpersonal and social behavior relative to his premorbid state. WAIS scores revealed intact IQ at superior levels, equivalent to premorbid ability as measured by the NART. LR performed at normal levels on a battery of executive function tasks, as did eight age- and IQ-matched controls. However, he showed impaired implicit learning on a serial reaction time task, and performed differently from controls on a mere exposure effect task. This case supports claims that implicit cognition may underpin some aspects of normal social functioning.
