Word frequency effects on free recall and recognition in patients with schizophrenia

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND:
Word frequency paradigms have been used repeatedly in healthy populations to help understand the functioning of verbal memory. We investigated the word frequency effects in a sample of patients with schizophrenia, assuming these data may shed light on certain encoding processes.
METHODS:
Two mixed lists of high- and low-frequency words were presented to 46 patients with schizophrenia and 43 healthy control subjects. List learning was followed by free recall and recognition in immediate and delayed conditions.
RESULTS:
Overall the high-frequency words were better recalled, whereas the low-frequency words were better recognised. The lack of interaction with diagnosis indicates that these effects were equivalent in both groups. In immediate recognition, the discrimination deficit for the high-frequency words in patients tended to be increased relative to that for the low-frequency words, suggesting greater impairment in the encoding of those words.
CONCLUSION:
It is argued that the encoding of the distinct low-frequency words is less efficient in patients, but qualitatively unimpaired. By contrast, the familiar words might be more difficult for patients to encode, as they are more easily confused with other common words stored in long-term memory.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The role of slowing of processing speed in verbal memory impairment in patients with schizophrenia was investigated. Forty-one patients with schizophrenia and 41 healthy control subjects were administered a verbal memory task involving free recall of three lists of words, which varied in their degree of semantic organization. Standard processing speed tests were administered as well. Regression analyses were conducted on the number of words recalled in each list. A global processing speed measure was a significant predictor of the recall of each list in patients. Patients were very significantly impaired in the recall of the three lists relative to healthy controls. However, when the processing speed measure was entered in the regression, the significance of diagnosis was considerably reduced for one of the lists, with no semantic organization, and eliminated for the other two lists which contained semantic organization. These findings suggest that slowing in processing speed is an important contributor to verbal memory impairment in patients with schizophrenia. The possible role of various specific slowing functions is discussed.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND:
Previous research has demonstrated that various types of verbal source memory error are associated with positive symptoms in patients with schizophrenia. Notably, intrusions in free recall have been associated with hallucinations and delusions. We tested the hypothesis that extra-list intrusions, assumed to arise from poor monitoring of internally generated words, are associated with verbal hallucinations and that intra-list intrusions are associated with global hallucination scores.
METHOD:
A sample of 41 patients with schizophrenia was administered four lists of words, followed by free recall. The number of correctly recalled words and the number of extra- and intra-list intrusions were tallied.
RESULTS:
The verbal hallucination score was significantly correlated with the number of extra-list intrusions, whereas it was unrelated to the number of correctly recalled words. The number of intra-list intrusions was significantly correlated with the global, but not with the verbal, hallucination score in the subsample of hallucinating patients. It was marginally significantly correlated with the delusion score in delusional patients.
CONCLUSIONS:
The data corroborate the view that verbal hallucinations are linked to defective monitoring of internal speech, and that errors in context processing are involved in hallucinations and delusions.

Serial and semantic encoding of lists of words in schizophrenia patients with visual hallucinations

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Previous research has suggested that visual hallucinations in schizophrenia are associated with abnormal salience of visual mental images. Since visual imagery is used as a mnemonic strategy to learn lists of words, increased visual imagery might impede the other commonly used strategies of serial and semantic encoding. We had previously published data on the serial and semantic strategies implemented by patients when learning lists of concrete words with different levels of semantic organisation (Brébion et al., 2004). In this paper we present a re-analysis of these data, aiming at investigating the associations between learning strategies and visual hallucinations. Results show that the patients with visual hallucinations presented less serial clustering in the non-organisable list than the other patients. In the semantically organisable list with typical instances, they presented both less serial and less semantic clustering than the other patients. Thus, patients with visual hallucinations demonstrate reduced use of serial and semantic encoding in the lists made up of fairly familiar concrete words, which enable the formation of mental images. Although these results are preliminary, we propose that this different processing of the lists stems from the abnormal salience of the mental images such patients experience from the word stimuli.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The authors undertook a study of the clinical correlates of verbal memory deficits in schizophrenia. The first purpose was to replicate the finding of a significant association between depression and impairment in the deep encoding memory processes. The second purpose was to test the hypothesis that certain clinical symptoms - avolition, disorders of attention - also play a role in verbal memory impairment, distinct from a global negative symptomatology score. Forty-one patients with schizophrenia underwent a memory task including forward digit span and learning lists of words with different levels of semantic organization. Regression analyses revealed that the depression score was associated with the total number of recalled words, whereas the global negative symptom score was not. Depression score was not associated with the forward digit span, a measure of superficial serial encoding processes. An analysis of individual symptoms from the Scale for the Assessment of Negative Symptoms (SANS) indicated that avolition was associated with several memory scores, suggesting a pervasive effect of this symptom. Attention disorders were associated with impaired efficiency in serial learning, but not with word recall efficiency. It is suggested that more consideration should be given to depression and motivation in the investigation of cognitive impairment in schizophrenia, as well as in cognitive remediation strategies.

Penguins can’t fly: how concept typicality affects category verification and verbal memory recognition

Contents: ABSTRACT:
The categorical structure of semantic knowledge provides us a system to organize the world, by establishing similarities and differences among concepts. For a given category (e.g. bird), some exemplars share many features and are therefore typical members of that category (e.g. sparrow), while others are more atypical as they present more distinctive features (e.g. penguin). While the impact of concept typicality on semantic processing has been extensively studied, it is less clear how this variable affects verbal memory retrieval of those concepts. It is well established that processing the meaning of words often aids episodic memory. However, it remains unknown how the categorical structure of concepts may support recognition memory for those concepts. We conducted a behavioral study to explore how two semantic variables – concept typicality and congruency – influence verbal episodic retrieval in healthy young adults. During encoding, 32 participants performed a category verification task, in which a category and an exemplar were presented and participants had to
decide if the exemplar belonged to the category. We manipulated concept typicality such that the exemplar was either a typical (e.g. bird-SPARROW) or an atypical member of the category (e.g. bird-PENGUIN). Category congruency was also manipulated, with the exemplar being presented either with the correct category or with a different category (e.g. bird-SUBMARINE). Subsequently, participants performed an item recognition task, in which they saw exemplars presented before and new ones, and had to decide if the item was old or new, along with a Remember/Know judgment for old decisions. As expected, category verification was faster and more accurate for typical than atypical concepts. This concept typicality effect occurred only when the exemplar belonged to the category (i.e. congruent condition). Interestingly, we found the inverse pattern during item recognition, with better item memory and more Remember responses for atypical than typical exemplars, independently of category congruency. There was also a main effect of category congruency such
that items encoded with their own category were better recognized and elicited more Remember responses than items encoded with different categories. Together, these results suggest that categorical structure improves verbal episodic recognition in two ways. First, the superior memory for atypical exemplars suggests that processing the unique features of those items (e.g. a penguin is a bird that can’t fly) results in richer memory traces, as these items carry more distinctive semantic characteristics that are diagnostic in item recognition. Second, processing information that is congruent with the hierarchical structure of semantic memory also promotes episodic retrieval. We propose that the processing of distinctive
categorical information is highly diagnostic during item recognition. A focus on semantic distinctiveness is a promising approach to characterize the interplay between semantic and episodic processing in verbal memory.

Fronto-temporal network promotes verbal memory retrieval via semantic elaboration

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The lexical-semantic properties of words have a significant effect on the ability to later retrieve those words. For example, processing the meaning of words, relative to processing their perceptual features, facilitates recognition. Likewise, concepts with more unique lexical-semantic features (e.g. low-frequency words) are generally better remembered than concepts with less unique features (e.g. high frequency words). Neuroimaging studies often implicate the left lateral prefrontal cortex in verbal memory retrieval. It has been argued that this activation reflects controlled semantic processing that facilitates later recognition. Yet, it remains unclear what aspects of semantic processing predict verbal memory performance and how it relates with prefrontal activation patterns. We addressed these questions in an fMRI paradigm using a verbal episodic recognition task, in which we manipulated the semantic distinctiveness of conceptual features. During encoding, participants performed a category verification task, in which they had to decide whether or not an exemplar belonged to a given category. Critically, exemplars were either typical members of a category such that they
shared many features with other members and were therefore semantically non-distinct (e.g. mammal-LION) or were atypical members of the category, bearing more unique and distinctive features (e.g. mammal-SEAL). Subsequently, participants were presented with the same exemplars among new ones, which were also typical or atypical, and had to decide whether or not the item had been presented before. Behaviorally, the recognition of atypical exemplars was more accurate than recognition of typical items. At a neural level, old items that were atypical of the category (relative to new atypical items) showed increased activation in left lateral prefrontal cortex, associated with controlled semantic elaboration, as well as bilateral middle temporal cortex, a region consistently linked to accessing semantic information.
Additionally, there was significant activation in occipitalparietal regions, including left inferior parietal lobe, left inferior occipital and bilateral angular gyrus, which may be associated with the integration of features. In contrast, old concepts that were typical members of the category (relative to new typical items) only showed occipital-parietal and anterior medial frontal activation, which might be related to source monitoring. Together, these findings reveal that processing atypical concepts improved recognition. This facilitation was accompanied by the recruitment of a left fronto-temporal network. We suggest that participants use the distinctive semantic features of atypical concepts as a cue that the concept
had been presented before. Moreover, we propose that the fronto-temporal activation is critical during verbal recognition tasks because it enables retrieval of semantic attributes that are indicative of the previously presented concepts.

Long-term memory for movie details: selective decay for verbal information at one week

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Mnemonic representations of complex events are multidimensional, incorporating information about objects and characters, their interactions and their spatial–temporal context. The present study investigated the degree to which detailed verbal information (i.e., dialogues), as well as semantic and spatiotemporal (i.e., “what”, “where”, and “when”) elements of episodic memories for movies, are forgotten over the course of a week. Moreover, we tested whether the amount of dimension-specific forgetting differed as a function of the participant's age. In a mixed design, younger and middle-aged participants were asked to watch a ~90 min movie and provide yes/no answers to detailed questions about different dimensions of the presented material after 1, 3 days, and 1 week. The results indicate that memory decay mainly affects the verbal dimension, both in terms of response accuracy and confidence. Instead, detailed information about objects/characters’ features and spatiotemporal context seems to be relatively preserved, despite a general decrease in response confidence. Furthermore, younger adults were in general more accurate and confident than middle-aged participants, although, again, the verbal dimension exhibited a significant age-related difference. We propose that this selective forgetting depends on the progressive advantage of visual compared to auditory/verbal information in memory for complex events.
