Independence of Age-Related Influences on Cognitive Abilities across the Life Span.
Salthouse, Timothy A.
Developmental Psychology, v34 n5 p851-64 Sep 1998
Used cross-sectional life span data from normative sample for Woodcock-Johnson Psycho-Educational Battery to examine independence of age-related cognitive changes in childhood and adulthood. Found that majority of age-related differences were shared across different cognitive variables and were well predicted by individual differences in higher-order factors, suggesting that the role of task-specific interpretations of developmental differences needs reevaluation.
