Verbal-Pictorial Recoding in the Elderly
Nebes, Robert D.
Journal of Gerontology, 31, 4, 421-427, Jul 76
Older individuals have been reported to use imagery mediation less in remembering verbal material. To determine whether this is due to decrease in the speed with which verbal stimuli are recoded into pictorial representations, the reaction time of 12 old (63-78) and 12 young (17-25) subjects for matching verbal descriptions to geometric shapes was measured.
