International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v16 n4 p271-82 1982-83
Considered the applicability of problem-solving concepts such as planfulness and depth of search to older adult cognitive behavior. Older adults (N=36) solved isomorphic inquiry problems. Half were given planning instructions. Planning instructions reduced the number of questions prior to solution and increased the informational value of inquiries. (Author/JAC)
