Destination memory refers to the ability to remember to whom information was previously transmitted. Our study tested destination memory in Korsakoff's syndrome. Participants with Korsakoff's syndrome were instructed to tell proverbs to pictures of celebrities. In a subsequent recognition test, they had to indicate whether they had previously told that proverb to that celebrity or not. Results showed compromise of destination memory in Korsakoff's syndrome.
