Decomposing Adult Age Differences in Working Memory.
Salthouse, Timothy A.; Babcock, Renee L.
Developmental Psychology, v27 n5 p763-77 Sep 1991

These relations were attenuated by measures of storage capacity, processing efficiency, coordination effectiveness, and simple comparison speed. The greatest attenuation occurred with simple processing speed. (BC)
