Age Differences in the Use of Imagery in Integrating New and Old Information in Memory.
Fullerton, Audrey M.
Journal of Gerontology, v38 n3 p326-32 May 1983
Investigated effects of two kinds of imagery on age differences in the ability to solve series problems. Overall, older adults (N=47) obtained lower scores than younger adults (N=41). However, results suggest older adults can use imagery as a control process, but are less likely to use imagery in abstract situations. (Author/JAC)
