Abstract

We report the improvement following rehabilitation of two patients with a selective deficit on multiplication facts. The remediation experiments were conducted in specific designs to test a series of hypotheses about both the process of reacquisition and organisation of arithmetical facts in memory. The results show a significant and stable recovery and the pattern of reacquisition reflects the different strategy used by the patients to relearn the multiplication facts. Quantitative and qualitative changes in error patterns in the course of remediation reveal the underlying (re)organization of the memory network representing multiplication facts.
