Gender-Linked Differences in the Incidental Memory of Children and Adults.
Cherney, Isabelle D.; Ryalls, Brigette Oliver
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v72 n4 p305-28 Apr 1999
Two studies tested the hunter-gatherer theory predicting that females should have better incidental memory for objects and locations than males. Subjects were 3- to 6-year olds and adults. Results indicated that females and males remembered more toys or objects congruent with their own sex but that there was no overall advantage for females. (Author/KB)
