Sample text

Explicit or declarative memory is the conscious storage and retrieval of information, such as personal knowledge. Explicit memory is further divided into semantic and episodic memory. Semantic memory is the memory for facts and concepts, and episodic memory involves recollection of personal events and the contexts in which they occur. The WMS-IV is primarily a measure of declarative episodic memory as the “information presented is novel and contextually bound by the testing situation and requires the examinee to learn and retrieve information” (Wechsler, 2009, p.

Information appears to be stored in the medial temporal lobe temporarily before being consolidated into long-term memory (Shimamura, 2002; Squire, Cohen, & Nadel, 1984). Research suggests longer term storage occurs in the posterior neocortex, although the hippocampus plays a role in the long-term storage of episodic memories (Nadel & Moscovitch, 1997; Shimamura & Wickens, 2009). The hippocampus interacts with cortical structures via circuits involving mamillary bodies, thalamic nuclei, and the posterior cingulate and also through projections from the perirhinal and parahippocampal cortex (Bauer, 2008).

Maintaining Rapport Maintaining rapport requires your full attention during test administration. Prior to test administration, you must master the mechanics of the WMS-IV, such as giving directions, handling materials, and timing and recording responses. Mastering these details will enable you to focus your efforts on the examinee rather than on learning the materials. This focus will help you observe the examinee’s verbal and nonverbal cues for signs of discomfort, unease, or frustration. If you notice signs of frustration, you may remind the examinee that the test was designed to include very difficult items and very few people obtain perfect scores.
