The Efficacy of Self-Taught Memory Training for Community-Dwelling Older Adults.
Scogin, Forrest; Prohaska, Mark
Educational Gerontology, v18 n8 p751-66 Dec 1992
Recall was assessed three times for older adults in three groups: (1) participants in self-taught memory training (n=22); (2) delayed-training control group (n=24); and (3) attention-placebo group (n=23). The self-taught group's recall was superior to the control but equal to the attention-placebo group. Self-teaching resulted in improved subjective memory, maintained after six months. (SK)
