Episodic memory refers to mem- ories of one's own experiences and is therefore unique and can be localized in time and space (Lezak, 1995). The authors justify the creation of another test of memory on the grounds that current assessment tools are not broad enough in their approach to memory or are vulnerable to the effects of confounding variables such as perceptual deficits or verbal coding, interfering with one's performance on particular subtests. Specifically, DP:TVVRR was designed to measure visual and verbal memory, testing both recall and recognition for each, and forgetting.
