Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v30 n1 p3-14 Feb 2000
This study examined whether children with high-functioning autism have a dissociation between explicit and implicit memory abilities characteristic of medial temporal lobe amnesic disorder. Children (N=14 and ages 6-14) with autism showed intact implicit and explicit memory abilities but did not show typical memory patterns, suggesting they used different organizational strategies in memory tasks.
