A 55-yr.-old woman who had had a meningioma removed many years previously performed well on various neuropsychological tests but showed apparent gross loss of gestalt in copying the Rey figure, and poor subsequent recall of the figure. Further investigation suggested that her copying style was at least partly attributable to her training in art and that she was capable of copying in a more usual fashion with subsequent improvement in recall.
