TitleDateViewsBrief Description
Age Differences in Item-Manipulation Span: The Case of Letter-Number Sequencing 2007 375 The authors report 2 experiments in which they examined age differences in working memory tasks involving complex item manipulation (i.e., letter-number sequencing). In Experiment 1, age differences on tasks involving item manipulation were not great...
Age Differences in Proactive Interference, Working Memory, and Reasoning 2008 351 It has been hypothesized that older adults are especially susceptible to proactive interference (PI) and that this may contribute to age differences in working memory performance. In young adults, individual differences in PI affect both working memo...
Age-Related Changes in Neural Activity During Performance Matched Working Memory Manipulation 2008 164 A long-standing assumption in the cognitive aging literature is that performance on working memory (WM) tasks involving serial recall is relatively unaffected by aging, whereas tasks that require the rearrangement of items prior to recall are more ag...
Cognitive Consequences of Expressive Regulation in Older Adults 2011 623 Previous research has suggested that older and young adults are equally able to regulate their outward expressions of emotion and that the regulation of emotional expression in younger adults results in decreased memory for the emotional stimulus. In...
Interdependence of Non-Overlapping Cortical Systems in Dual Cognitive Tasks 2001 169 One of the classic questions about human thinking concerns the limited ability to perform two cognitive tasks concurrently, such as a novice driver's difficulty in simultaneously driving and conversing. Limitations on the concurrent performance of tw...
Viewing Instructions Impact Emotional Memory Differently in Older and Younger Adults 2008 423 The current study examines how the instructions given during picture viewing impact age differences in incidental emotional memory. Previous research has suggested that older adults' memory may be better when they make emotional rather than perceptua...
