There is considerable evidence for distributed storage of associative memory throughout the cortex, which may even occur as a statistical function (Cohen, 1993). At the same time, evidence indicates more localized storage of certain memories and localized centers for memory formation and for classical and operant conditioning. The medial aspect of the temporal lobe— particularly the hippocampus and its connecting fibers within the other limbic and paralimbic structures—is particularly important in the development of associative memory.
The first, as noted above, is the evaluation of the severity of symptom expression; the second is the assessment of treatment effects through careful psychometric monitoring of changes in symptom expression. Historically, neuropsychological evaluations were conducted with adults with known brain damage or injury, to determine lateralization or localization of lesion or injury. As Lezak (1995) points out, “[the] rapid evolution [of such evaluations] in recent years reflects a growing sensitivity among clinicians to the practical problems of identification, assessment, care, and treat- Neuropsychological Assessment ment of brain damaged patients” (p.
