Children's Susceptibility to Retroactive Interference: The Effects of Age and Degree of Learning.
Lee, Kerry; Bussey, Kay
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v80 n4 p372-91 Dec 2001
Examined effects of age and degree of learning on children's susceptibility to retroactive interference. Found that children who participated repeatedly in target game recognized more information from that game than children who participated once. Both 4- and 7-year-olds were susceptible to retroactive interference; susceptibility was not affected by age or degree of learning. Seven-year-olds were more accurate at test. (Author/KB)
