The Role of Stimulus Alignment in Children's Memory for Line Orientation.
Fisher, Celia B.
Child Development, v53 n4 p1070-74 Aug 1982
In the first experiment, 16 kindergarten children were tested on vertical/horizontal and oblique discriminations in symmetrical and asymmetrical alignments. When stimuli were asymmetrically aligned, the former discrimination was learned as rapidly as the latter. The second experiment demonstrated that the influence of configurational cues in memory for vertical/horizontal orientations increases when relationships between orthogonal stimuli are made salient.
