Childhood Anxiety and Memory Functioning: A Comparison of Systemic and Processing Accounts.
Daleiden, Eric L.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v68 n3 p216-35 Mar 1998
Examined relationship between anxiety and memory in 160 high- and low-trait-anxious sixth through eighth graders. Found that anxiety predicted memory bias toward negative relative to neutral information during conceptual but not perceptual tasks. Anxiety predicted memory bias toward positive relative to neutral information on procedural tasks and memory bias away from positive relative to neutral information on declarative tasks. (Author)
