During the latter half of the nineteenth century, clinicians noted that cerebral-arteriosclerotics failed to recall recent events even though they were able to recall remote or earlier events. This problem assumes considerable importance when it is realized that an appreciably large number of people have this disorder. In 1946 the United States Department of Commerce census found that patients with cerebral-psychosis constituted 10.8 per cent of all first admissions to various hospitals (state, veterans, county, city, private), which made it secondary only to schizophrenia with 20.5 per cent.
