Patients were also asked to evaluate their own skills.
One of the areas of their research investigates subjective awareness of cognitive ability, particularly memory. Patients are asked to answer questions that allow for them to evaluate their own knowledge and skills. They are asked questions that allow for them to detail how well they feel they perform on routine memory tasks, outline the amount of knowledge that have around the way the memory works, and strategies that they may use to help themselves remember things. They are also asked to investigate their feelings around their memory loss and their control over the situation.
