Assessing the role of pair familiarity in the associative deficit of older adults
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
While aging causes relatively minor impairment in recognition memory for components, older adults' ability to remember associations between components is typically significantly compromised, relative to that of younger ...
Decreases in working memory capacity for sentence stimuli with adult aging
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
Previous studies have found that older adults have poorer immediate recall for language. Older adults may recall fewer chunks from working memory, or may have difficulty binding words or sentences together to form multi-unit ...
Paying attention to binding: is the associative deficit of older adults mediated by reduced attentional resources?
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
One notion put forth to explain age-related, episodic memory problems is the associative-deficit hypothesis, stating that they are due to older adults' decreased binding ability (i.e., their ability to encode separate ...
Who did what?: age-related differences in memory for people and their actions
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
The associative-deficit hypothesis (ADH), proposed by Naveh-Benjamin (2000), holds that the decline in episodic memory that accompanies aging is at least partially due to an inability to bind single units of information ...
