Referential processing places high demands on hippocampal declarative memory. <i>Poster presentation at the Society for the Neurobiology of Language Conference</i>, San Sebastian, Spain.</p><p>• In a preliminary study of referential processing in patients with bilateral hippocampal damage and severe and selective declarative memory impairment we reported disruptions; these patients produced fewer cohesive ties, the adequacy of their ties were more often judged to be incomplete, and ratings of their local coherence were consistently lower than comparison participants (Kurczek & Duff, 2011) </p> <p>• Here we extend this line of work by performing a more extensive examination of discourse cohesion and coherence in patients with hippocampal amnesia across a variety of narrative tasks </p> </div> </div> </div> </div>
