The present study examined the performance of two groups of amnesic subjects on a cross-modal identification task. It was found that subjects with Korsakoff's disease did not differ from alcoholic controls on their ability to match the tactile feel of an arc with the visual appearance of the full circle from which the arc was taken. The postencephalitic subjects were, however, impaired on this same task. All groups performed normally on two intramodal control tasks. The postencephalitic group, like the Korsakoff subjects, were also poor at identifying common objects from tactile cues. The results are consistent with the notion that limbic regions in the temporal lobe are important for cross-modal associations
