Purpose: To describe a cognitive neuroscience model of memory that can be used to guide assessment and promote consistent terminology among members of the rehabilitation team, and to relate the model to frequently used assessment measures. Method: Description of a model of memory, description of how frequently used memory measures relate to the model, and presentation of case studies to exemplify the application of the model to the clinical assessment of memory. Conclusions: Use of a theoretical framework is important for choosing assessment instruments, interpreting the results of test performance, and communicating with patients, their family members, and other members of the interdisciplinary team. Understanding where in the memory process a breakdown occurs can guide treatment recommendations and feedback to patients and family members. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
