Abstract

Mograbi and Morris review work highlighting an interesting phenomenon whereby individuals are explicitly anosognosic for their deficits despite intact expression of implicit awareness. Parallels exist between this phenomenon and recent cognitive neuroscience findings demonstrating intact memory test performance despite unawareness of performance. We discuss these parallels with regard to the proposed CAM model. Given that it is possible to investigate the neurological underpinnings of explicit and implicit processing in memory tasks, methods from cognitive neuroscience may offer substantial insight into implicit awareness in anosognosia in various forms of dementia as well as in addition to advancing theoretical understanding of anosognosia broadly.
