Attentional Resource Demands of Stimulus Encoding for Persons with and without Mental Retardation.
Merrill, Edward C.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v97 n1 p87-98 Jul 1992
Experiments were conducted on the speed of encoding differences between 15 school-age individuals with and 15 individuals without mental retardation, while retaining a full memory load or half memory load. Subjects with mental retardation allocated fewer attentional resources to encoding, even though encoding may require more of their resources for efficient execution. (Author/JDD)
