Contributions of processing ability and knowledge to verbal memory tasks across the adult life-span



Contributions of processing ability and knowledge to verbal memory tasks across the adult life-span



Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology. A, Human Experimental Psychology 58(1): 169-190



This study investigated the relationships of processing capacity and knowledge to memory measures that varied in retrieval difficulty and reliance on verbal knowledge in an adult life-span sample (N= 341).
