A method for testing the impairment of short-term memory, is described, and experimental support of its usefulness is presented. The test is the delayed recall of numbers and consists of the recall of single-digit to progressively longer multi-digit numbers at three short intervals per number. The test was evaluated for the ability of recall of digits forward and backward to measure memory deficits caused by scopolamine. It was determined that the digits-forward test is sufficient to observe effects on memory and that memory deficit is dose-dependent for three doses of scopolamine. Author
