Discourse Performance in Older Adults.
North, Alvin J.; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v23 n4 p267-83 1986
Assessed older (N=33) and middle-aged (N=18) women on linguistic discourse tasks. Subjects were interviewed, administered cognitive tests, and given narrative and procedural discourse tasks. Older subjects generally performed more poorly than did middle-aged subjects. Within the older group, measures of quality of disclosure were generally negatively related to age and positively related to cognitive test scores. (Author/NB)
