Mental Retardation and Emotional Disorders: A Test for Increased Vulnerability to Stress.
Nucci, Maria; Reiss, Steven
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v13 n2 p161-66 Sep 1987
Effects of stress-producing conditions on 36 mentally retarded and 36 nonretarded persons (ages 20-53) before performing a counting task were measured. Contrary to stereotypes that predicted retarded subjects' performance would be more vulnerable to stress, results showed that mild but measurable levels of stress improved performance for both groups.
