Production Deficiencies in Free Recall: A Comparison of Hyperactive, Learning-Disabled, and Normal Children.
August, Gerald J.
Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, v15 n3 p429-40 Sep 1987
Hyperactive boys (N=20) recalled fewer words and showed less category organization than reading-disabled and normal boys. Rather than lacking the skill to use semantic organization as a strategy in free recall, hyperactive boys had difficulty in spontaneously generating the strategy and in sustaining sufficient effort to task completion.
