This study aimed to investigate the effect of spatial retrieval training for memory in hippocampal herpetic encephalitis through a single case study. The subject of the study was a person diagnosed with herpes encephalitis, and the study design used the 'ABA' design among single subject experimental research designs. The intervention was performed for 40 minutes per section, 12 times in total. The independent variable was spaced retrieval training, and the dependent variables were the recall success rate, the rey-complex figure test, and the facial immediate memory and facial delayed memory of the Korean version of memory assessment scale. After spaced retrieval training, the subject's recall success rate, the rey-complex figure test, and the Korean version of memory assessment scale improved the immediate facial memory and facial delayed memory. As a result of measuring the treatment maintenance effect after the completion of the rebasing line, the subject's immediate facial memory and facial delayed memory in the rey-complex figure test and the Korean version of memory assessment scale were maintained.
This study demonstrated space retrieval training showed significant improvement in the memory for the herpes encephalitis in hippocampus.
