Frankel, Marc T.; Rollins, Howard A., Jr.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v34 n1 p113-22 Aug 1982
Investigates why children under eight years of age show categorical clustering above chance expectations in free recall, when such organization does not correlate with recall. Six-year-old children and adults were tested for memory of 24 pictures of categorizable items. Proportion of items recalled in category strings and number of strings of each length were evaluated.
