Maisto, Albert A.; Queen, Debbie Elaine
Educational Gerontology, v18 n2 p213-23 Mar 1992
The performance of 53 younger adults (mean age 20.7) and 52 older adults (mean age 68.3) was compared in a memory task involving pictures, words, and pictures-plus-words. Results showed (1) significantly higher recall scores for younger adults; (2) equivalent picture superiority effect for both groups; and (3) decline in older adults' performance in the picture-plus-words condition.
