* In absolute coding of position three lists were shown.
Table 2 results show that severely and disturbed demented patients performed better on absolute coding of position.
The most fascinating fact about these results was that their performance though was not significantly different but showed similar trends, that is, both the patient groups displayed better on absolute coding of position.
To conclude our findings indicated that severely and moderately disturbed dementia patients responded better on absolute coding of position, while control group responded better on relative coding of position.
In the absolute coding position items are associated with their absolute position from the start e.g.
