Digit and shape memory function in soroban learners: are soroban learners superior in general?



Digit and shape memory function in soroban learners: are soroban learners superior in general?



Perceptual and Motor Skills 81(1): 75-80



The memory function of 15 soroban learners and 13 novices was examined on visual memory tasks. Analysis showed soroban learners were superior in performance of digit recall but not of shape recall. This result seems to reflect the tendency for soroban groups to be better in processing some kinds of spatial than categorical properties. Based upon these results, effects of soroban learning on brain function were discussed.
