Memory for Orientation of Forms as a Function of Their Meaningfulness and Complexity
Mandler, Jean M.; Day, Jeanne
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 20, 3, 430-443, Dec 75
Accuracy of memory for left-right orientation of single forms varying in meaningfulness and complexity was studied in 120 subjects at 5 age levels from kindergarten to adulthood. Complexity was found to be unimportant, but orientation of meaningful figures was remembered better than orientation of non-meaningful figures at all ages. (GO)
