Abstract

The relationship between the value of an item borrowed from a patient for a prospective memory task and the number of cues required by the patient for requesting its return was analyzed in 63 consecutive patients referred for clinical neuropsychological evaluation. The correlation was negligible (rho = -.001). Number of cues needed was better predicted by score on the Mini-Mental State Exam (r = -.541, p <.001) than by subject's age, sex, or education, or the value of the item taken.
