Abstract:
Case study of a man, age 22, with deficits in memory and executive function following brain injury, who used a microcomputer as an external memory aid. The authors report that with the aid of the microcomputer, this man was able to arrive at his therapy sessions on time and ask for all the medications on his schedule. They conclude that this case demonstrates the usefulness of a microcomputer as an external memory aid for persons with memory impairments due to brain injury.
