Age and Creative Productivity: Nonlinear Estimation of an Information-Processing Model.
Simonton, Dean Keith
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v29 n1 p23-37 1989
Applied two-step cognitive model to relationship between age and creative productivity. Selected ideation and elaboration rates as information-processing parameters that define mathematical function which describes age curves and specifies their variance across disciplines. Applied non-linear estimation program to further validate model. Despite prediction of post-peak decline, model's implications for creativity over life span are optimistic. (Author/CM)
