Memory impairment is commonly associated with ageing and is one of the
most prominent clinical features of senile dementia. In contrast to normal
elderly subjects, demented subjects show a relative preservation of remote
memory; although unable to recall recent events, they are able to reproduce
more distant recollections. This has been illustrated using a variety of remote
memory tests. Most remote memory tests are, however, open to criticism due
to the many methodological problems inherent in their design. This review
examines some of the remote memory tests which are available for use in
clinical and research settings. Directions for future research are discussed.
