Chapter 7 discusses the amnestic syndromes, which are those disorders that have memory problems as the key feature, and investigates the consolidation deficit, where creating a new memory is impaired, as well as recall deficits, where a memory ‘trace’ may have been created but summoning the memory is problematic, and how the former is dependent on the limbic (hippocampal-mammilo-thalamic) network and the latter the prefrontal-sub-cortical network. How to identify the distinction between the two is also discussed.
