The Development of Efficient Inhibition: Evidence from Directed-Forgetting Tasks.
Wilson, Steffen Pope; Kipp, Katherine
Developmental Review, v18 n1 p86-123 Mar 1998
Reviews and reinterprets current developmental directed-forgetting literature within an inhibition framework. Argues that item-by-item cued directed-forgetting tasks manipulate selective rehearsal to produce greater recall of to-be-remembered than to-be-forgotten items, producing directed-forgetting effects by second grade. Blocked and "only" cued directed-forgetting tasks manipulate retrieval inhibition to suppress to-be-forgotten items, producing directed-forgetting usually by fifth grade. (Author/KB)
