Winters, John J.; Hoats, David L.
American Journal of Mental Retardation, v92 n6 p517-24 May 1988
The study evaluated the semantic system of mentally retarded adults (N=32) to determine whether they encode information in semantic memory on the dimensions of item prototypicality and list organization. Results suggested that interference effects inhibited encoding by organization and typicality. (DB)
