Knowledge Growth and Maintenance across the Lifespan: The Role of Print Exposure.
Stanowich, Keith E.; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v31 n5 p811-26 Sep 1995
Examined the effects of print exposure on growth of declarative knowledge and vocabulary in 133 college students and 49 elderly adults. Compared groups on two general knowledge tasks, vocabulary, working memory, syllogistic reasoning, and print exposure. Found that exposure to print was a significant predictor of declarative and vocabulary knowledge. Findings support a theory of fluid-crystallized intelligence. (JW)
