Responses of aphasic patients on a visual discrimination task were monitored using a baseline probe technique. A baseline item was shaped and used as a probe item during the task. Retention of test instructions and fatigue were delineated from item complexity by the probes. Patients responded correctly to probe items during sequences of errors, suggesting that the notion of “temporary imperception” to account for such error clusters is not tenable.
