Encoding Strategies and Recall Performance of a Complex Figure by Normal Elderly Subjects.
Ska, Bernadette; Nespoulous, Jean-Luc
Canadian Journal on Aging, v7 n4 p408-16 Win 1988
A study of 150 subjects aged 20-84 found that (1) the encoding strategy used was not characteristic of a given age; (2) elderly subjects reproduced less during encoding and retrieved fewer elements during recall; (3) until 74, there was a relationship between the encoding strategy and performance; (4) after 75, memory problems developed differently and this relationship became insignificant.
