Anterograde amnesia is one of the most severe neuropsychological deficit. Neuropsychological studies showed that amnesic patients can learn new information by means of implicit memory mechanisms. The 'vanishing cues' is a technic using the implicit memory mechanisms which allows amnesic patients to learn new information and abilities. We studied amnesic patients and tried to verify whether this method can be useful to learn arbitrary associations and non-verbal information. The results show that the 'vanishing cues' method is not useful for learning non-verbal information and if it is impossible to use the previous semantic-lexical knowledge.
