Task Complexity and Problem-Solving Performance in Younger and Older Adults.
Hartley, Alan A.; Anderson, Joan Wilson
Journal of Gerontology, v38 n1 p72-77 Jan 1983
Tested the hypothesis that increasing problem complexity elicits strategies of greater efficiency from older adults. Responses of older and younger adults were compared in a version of "Twenty Questions." No evidence was found that older adults seek more efficient strategies. Both groups maintained the same strategies. (Author/JAC)
