Suppression of Irrelevant Location Information by Individuals with and without Mental Retardation.
Merrill, Edward C.; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v99 n2 p207-14 Sep 1994
Negative priming in a location task was examined for 30 individuals (mean age 18 and 19 years) either with or without mental retardation. In contrast to results obtained using identification tasks, all subjects exhibited interference to locating the target in the negative priming condition. All individuals apparently actively suppressed response tendencies to the location of irrelevant information. (Author/DB)
