The Effects of Children's Stereotypes on Their Memory for Elderly Individuals.
Davidson, Denise; And Others
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v41 n1 p70-90 Jan 1995
Elementary school children were asked to recall information about individuals either labeled elderly or not labeled at all. Found that children rated the elderly as unattractive, poor, sad, and sick and also had negative feelings about being old. Results suggest that children's concepts or stereotypes about the elderly affect the organization and recall of information about specific elderly individuals. (AA)
