Effects of Procedure on Memory Scanning of Mildly Mentally Retarded Adults.
Phillips, C. J.; Nettelbeck, T.
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v88 n6 p668-77 May 1984
The performance of 10 mildly mentally retarded adults on recognition memory tasks in a fixed-set and varied-set procedure was compared with that of nonretarded control subjects. Results suggest that retarded adults use different processing strategies in the two procedures and that rate of processing increases with increasing mental age. (Author/CL)
