Why forget the false positives? (pages 377-378)

Attention is drawn to the omission of false positive response tendencies from the data captured by prestigious clinical memory assessment devices. Data from a small pilot study, using alcohol abusers, suggest that this is potentially costly in terms of understanding and measuring dysfunction. There is also an indication that, by measuring with greater sensitivity to response patterns, it may be possible to identify memory dysfunction in alcohol abusers earlier in their abuse careers.
