Greenfield, Daryl B.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 21, 2, 289-302, Apr 76
Forty retarded children, a Low Mental Age (MA) Group (mean MA 3-3 years) and a High MA Group (mean MA 5-7 years) were trained on 120 different two-choice visual discrimination problems. Initial performance differences were interpreted as a differential preference for novel and familiar stimuli. (JH)
