Individual Differences in the Representation of Sentences in Memory.
Merrill, Edward C.; Bilsky, Linda H.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v95 n1 p68-76 Jul 1990
Mildly retarded adolescents (N=33) were assessed on the nature of the memory representation that underlies ability to remember single sentences. The cued recall procedure reflected a difference in the degree to which mentally retarded and nonretarded individuals construct sentence representations that more precisely specify sentence meaning through integration of its constituents.
