Short-Term Memory for Movement Duration in Mentally Retarded and Nonretarded Adults.
Elliott, Digby; Grundy, Stephen B.
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v10 n4 p191-95 Dec 1984
Both retarded and nonretarded adults (N=26) failed to benefit from opportunities to mentally rehearse their criterion movement over the retention interval, suggesting that strategic differences between the groups cannot explain the poorer performances of the retarded Ss. The retarded Ss appeared to have problems remembering the sensory consequences of a movement. (CL)
