In three experiments, it was investigated whether Korsakoff patients would show diminished implicit false memory for semantically related words in the Deese/Roediger-McDermott (DRM) paradigm. This was done to examine whether previous findings of reduced false memory were due to problems at encoding, recollection, or both. Stem completion was tested either at the end of the experiment (Experiment 1) or immediately after study (Experiments 2 and 3). Both study instructions and study duration were manipulated. Results revealed that Korsakoff patients’ veridical and false memory scores were only impaired when explicit recollection was required, but not when memory was tested implicitly.
