Structural Models of the Relations between Age and Measures of Cognitive Functioning.
Salthouse, Timothy A.
Intelligence, v29 n2 p93-115 2001
Examined alternative models of the pattern of relations among age and variables representing distinct cognitive factors in data from a study involving 206 adults ages 18 to 84 years. Models with a single age-related influence were surprisingly accurate at reproducing the age correlations on the variables. The best fit was for a hierarchical model in which age-related influences operated only at the highest level. (SLD)
