Abstract

The semantic priming task is a valuable tool in the investigation of semantic memory impairments in patients with acquired disorders of language. This is because priming performance reflects automatic or implicit access to semantic information, unlike most other tests of semantic knowledge, which rely on explicit, voluntary access. Priming resultsare important for two main reasons: First, normal priming results maybe observed in patients who perform poorly on other semantic memory tests, enabling us to distinguish between loss of, or damage to, information in semantic memory, and Voluntary access to that information. Second, we can investigate the detailed pattern of loss and preservationof different types of semantic information, by charting the priming effects for different kinds of words, and different kinds of semantic relations between primes and targets. We discuss the use of the primingtask in this context, and address some of the theoretical and methodological criticisms that have been raised in connection with use of thepriming task to address these issues. We then describe two recent studies in which we have employed semantic priming tasks, along with other more traditional, methods, to investigate specific questions about the semantic memory deficits of three patients.
