ABSTRACT
The author reflects on a study which successfully used a recognition test to reveal a selective recollection impairment after general anesthesia in infancy in humans and in a rodent model. He mentions the deployment of the signal detection theory method to calculate a receiver operating curve (ROC) to separate recollection from familiarity in animals. He further cites the significance of the findings of the study for the use of general anesthesia in infancy.
