Individual Differences in Long-Term Memory Access.
Hunt, Earl B.; And Others
In a study of individual differences in long-term memory access, university undergraduates verified (1) whether an item was a member of a category; (2) whether two items belonged in the same category; and (3) whether two words had the same name. Reaction times from these tasks were correlated with verbal ability, as measured by performance on a standardized test of vocabulary and reading comprehension. A relationship was found between verbal ability and rection time in the verification tasks. These results are contrasted with those of Hosaboam and Pellesrino (1978), who failed to find such a relationship. The results indicated that the varous reaction time measures form a single factor that bears a moderate relationship to reading and vocabulary measures. (Author/GK)
