Mentally Retarded Adolescents' Breadth of Attention and Short-Term Memory Processes during Matching-to-Sample Discriminations.
Whiteley, John H.; And Others
American Journal of Mental Deficiency, v92 n2 p207-12 Sep 1987
Processes contributing to matching-to-sample deficits were investigated with 22 moderately and severely mentally retarded adolescents. Although nonretarded subjects performed better on immediate and delayed retention tests, there was no difference in rate of forgetting, and rehearsal improved delayed test performance equally for both groups.
