Similarities in the Detection of Stimulus Symmetry by Individuals with and without Mental Retardation.
Carlin, Michael T.; Soraci, Sal A., Jr.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v98 n3 p336-48 Nov 1993
This study found that 10 adolescents with mental retardation processed stimuli varying with respect to symmetry in comparable manner to peers matched for mental age and chronological age. Results argue for the robustness of the symmetry effect across groups differing in intelligence and physically dissimilar stimulus types (checkerboard versus polygon). (Author/JDD)
