The article focuses on various research studies related to learning disabilities. One of the studies focuses on attention and seizure disorders. Impaired attention is associated with seizure disorders in a variety of ways. Transient interruption of attention characterizes the clinical picture of certain types of minor attack. More prolonged alteration of awareness is seen in the acute and subacute confusional states that may follow attacks, or in the condition of minor epileptic status. The results of various investigations suggest that certain features characterize the type of seizure discharge most disruptive of performance on tests of attention or of cognitive-motor abilities. Another study is related to memory deficiencies. In this study, the researchers tried both a method of direct observation of spontaneous learning strategies and a method of experimentally reversing the use of rehearsal and non-rehearsal by normals and retardates. These two procedures were applied sequentially in a single session. On each trial the subject paced himself through a new meaningless list of letters which appeared serially in distinct physical locations. Immediately after seeing the last letter, he saw a probe letter and tried to recall its original presentation location.
