We assessed 136 normal control subjects and between 12 and 16 mnesic subjects on three tests of indirect memory. The three tests were a perceptual priming test (fragmented pictures), an auditory priming test to determine preference for novel or previously heard melodies (Korean melodies), and a motor skill learning test (mirror tracing). We have established normative data for these tasks and demonstrated that amnesic subjects tend to be poorer than controls in general but show a similar pattern of learning over time.
