Memory for Discourse in Old Age.
Cohen, Gilliam; Faulkner, Dorothy
Discourse Processes, v4 n3 p253-65 Jul-Sep 1981
Memory for discourse by older adults was examined by comparing their performance with that of younger subjects on a text recognition task. Results showed that the old were better at detecting lexical substitutions than subject-object reversals, suggesting that the old retain lexical items better than the relations between them. (FL)
