Aging and the von restorff isolation effect in short/term memory
Journal of General Psychology
College students (n = 36) and elderly persons (n = 28 females, eight males; 60–83 years old) were compared on an immediate-memory task involving an outstanding item in the center of the array. The college students remembered the outstanding item well, the elderly did not. Both groups displayed better overall performance for the list containing the outstanding item. The results are discussed in terms of differences in processing strategies. © 1982 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
