Pathology of Semantic Memory


The best-known memory disorders are those affecting episodic memory. They consist of forgetting events as they happen. There is another, rarer pathology, in which patients progressively lose their knowledge of the world. We have helped to demonstrate that there are two distinct clinical entities (loss of verbal labels, or 'deep' semantics). This has repercussions not only on treatment, but also on the support provided by family and friends.
