Molfese, Victoria J.; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v14 n1 p45-53 1981-82
Investigated the influence of methodological variables on the performance of older adults.

The more distracting home setting required more attention cues to maintain partner attention than the laboratory setting. (Author/JAC)
