One can have a conversation with an amnesia sufferer without suspecting any mental abnormalitiesmuntil one leaves the room and returns to find that one has been forgotten. Milner (1958) was apparently the first to interpret this syndrome as reflecting an inability to transfer (or, more precisely, cop),) information into a distinct LTM system. Because these individuals retain the ability to hold onto information for a short period (in span tasks or in ordinary conversation), however, Milner proposed that they must have intact short-term memory system(s) that work over distraction-free intervals.
