Effects of Practice on Recognition Memory of Mildly Mentally Retarded Adults.
Phillips, C. J.; Nettelbeck, T.
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v88 n6 p678-87 May 1984
The effect of practice on recognition of mildly mentally retarded adults was investigated in two experiments using the S. Sternberg memory scanning paradigm. Although the generally poorer performance of retarded adults in this task may reflect some structural impairment, the initial level of deficiency is reduced by practice. (Author/CL)
