Abstract

The sensitivity of 6- versus 12-trial versions of the Verbal Selective Reminding Test (VSRT) to the material-specific memory deficits that are often observed in patients with lateralized temporal lobe (TL) impairment was investigated in 84 patients with complex partial seizures of temporal lobe origin (left = 45; right = 39). Patients with left-TL impairment tended to perform worse than patients with right-TL impairment on both long-term storage (LTS) and continuous long-term retrieval (CLTR) using either 6- or 12-trial versions. When employed to classify individual patients, comparable classification was obtained using either 6- or 12-trial formats. These results indicate that a shortened 6-trial format may be employed without any significant loss of sensitivity to left-TL impairment.
