Scripts in Memory for Text.
Bower, Gordon H.; And Others
Cognitive Psychology, v11 n2 p177-220 Apr 1979
Seven experiments investigated adults' knowledge of routine activities (e.g., eating in a restaurant) and how that knowledge is organized and used to understand and remember narrative texts. "Script" denotes these action stereotypes; the role of script knowledge in text memory is discussed, as is the relation of scripts to schema memory. (Author/RD)
