Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) Recently, there has been evidence that some brain damaged patients who do not show covert recognition can demonstrate a form of nonconscious, covert recognition. In this study, we investigated covert recognition in a associative prosopagnosia patient H.I. using traditional tasks which is based on intellectual information and our original task which is based on affective information. In face-name paired-associate learning task, H.I. shows covert face recognition and supports the view that patients who preserves perceptual ability demonstrate covert recognition. In forced-choice task, H.I. shows covert recognition only when he chose faces based on affective information. These results indicates that covert recognition also consists of multiple mechanisms.
