Memory for Frequency of Occurrence in Retarded and Nonretarded Persons.
Ellis, Norman R.; Allison, Pamela
Intelligence, v12 n1 p61-75 Jan-Mar 1988
Ninety-six mildly mentally retarded persons and 96 nonretarded college students estimated the frequency of occurrence of words and pictures in a study test paradigm. Frequency estimates were equal for words, but the nonretarded subjects were superior in accuracy on pictorial items. This finding points to an encoding deficiency attributed to automatic processing inadequacy. (SLD)
