Abstract First paragraph: The most widely used neuropsychological measures of visuo-spatial short-term memory (STM) are the Corsi Test (Milner, 1971) and the Visual Span subtest from the revised Wechsler Memory Scale (Wechsler, 1987). Although these tasks have a visual component, sequencing ability is also important and may be one of the main skills emphasized by the tests. We wished to devise a measure of short-term visual memory which did not involve sequencing, but rather concerned representation of shapes and spatial relationships between items simultaneously present.
