Non-Verbal Information Storage in Humans and Developmental Information Processing Channel Capacity.
Randhawa, Bikkar S.
This study was designed to ascertain the nature of information storage in humans and to determine the channel capacity of Ss at various stages of development. A 3 x 2 x 2 multivariate complete factorial design was employed: the three levels of the first factor (Age) were 5, 8, and 12 years; the two levels of the second factor were Visual and Verbal inputs; and the two levels of the third factor were Reconstruction and Verbal Description. One hundred and twenty children, 40 at each age level, were randomly selected and assigned 10 each to each treatment. Ss were tested individually. The results indicated that information is stored in nonverbal form in such tasks. The nonverbal image storage is affected differently by the developmental level of the Ss. (Author)
