Welch-Ross, Melissa K.; Schmidt, Contance R.
Child Development, v67 n3 p820-35 Jun 1996
Examined developmental differences in the effect of stereotype manipulations on the construction of new memories, and the relation between stereotyped activity preferences and memory for gender-related information among four-, six-, and eight-year olds. Contrary to expectations, stereotype manipulation effects interacted with gender; effects were strongly related to memory for gender-related information for both males and females. (HTH)
