MetadataShow full item record
The present research is designed to investigate a recall deficit in schizophrenia which has been reported by some workers. Twenty-four acute schizophrenics and 24 normal subjects of average verbal intelligence were selected. Patients were selected on the basis of psychiatric diagnosis and MMPI profiles. Random series of 5 and 7-digit lists were presented on a memory drum for recall. A successive probe technique randomly probed for each serial position on every presentation.
