Developmental Trends in Distractibility: Is Absolute or Proportional Decrement the Appropriate Measure of Interference?
Well, Arnold D.; And Others
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v30 n1 p109-24 Aug 1980
Robust interference effects were found which declined with age. Manipulating discriminability of the relevant stimulus dimension resulted in large changes in sorting time, but interference effects did not vary with baseline difficulty. These results were interpreted as strongly supporting both an absolute decrement model and a developmental trend in distractibility. (Author/DB)
