Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine whether healthy individuals displayed deficits in their ability to estimate their memory function as it relates to anosognosia. Individuals were assessed on a prediction/performance paradigm using a supra-span list learning test and then assessed with brief neuropsychological measures with an expectation that those found to be inaccurate should exhibit relative deficits on tests of right frontal function. Method: Participants included 60 individuals recruited from an undergraduate population at a major university. All were screened for history of psychiatric or neurologic insult. Participants were asked to estimate the number of words they believed they could remember from a list of 16 (California Verbal Learning Test-II) and then assessed using the instrument with a comparison made between prediction and performance. They were then assessed using a brief battery of neuropsychological tests followed by another prediction/performance estimate and delayed recall trial. Results: Primary analyses...
