The Development of Cognitive Inhibition in Streams-of-Consciousness and Directed Speech.
Kipp, Katherine; Pope, Steffen
Cognitive Development, v12 n2 p239-60 Apr-Jun 1997
Examined development of ability to inhibit thoughts within free speech by manipulating the content requirements of overt streams-of-consciousness. Investigation with kindergartners, second graders, fifth graders, and adults revealed a developmental improvement in inhibitory ability over the middle-childhood years; results are consistent with interpretation that developmental improvements in cognitive inhibition contribute to developmental improvements in cognitive function.
