Metacognitive age differences in strategy shift: retrieval avoidance or general shift reluctance? 2012 1134 Previous studies of metacognitive age differences in skill acquisition have relied exclusively on tasks with a processing shift from an algorithm to retrieval strategy. Thus, it is unclear whether older adults' (OAs') demonstrated reluctance to shift...
To use or not to use? influences of list presentation format and working memory capacity on older adults' semantic clustering 2013 1498 The goal of the present study was to examine effects of list presentation format (study list presented as a whole vs. words presented briefly individually) on younger and older adults' semantic clustering of study words. Spontaneous clustering use di...
Aging and task representation updating 2015 576 Older adults’ performance decrements can sometime be traced back to inferior strategic choices compared to their younger counterparts. Additionally, older adults often fail to revise their strategic choices with task experience (Bieman-Copland & Char...
Stereotype threat and mind-wandering in older adults 2016 393 Research on aging and mind-wandering has revealed that, while older adults report fewer mind-wandering episodes than do younger adults, they report proportionally more task-related interference (TRI; mind-wandering about task performance or approach)...
Metacognitive predictions and strategic adaptation to distraction 2017 111 Distracted driving accounts for a substantial portion of vehicular fatalities and injuries in the United States. The effects of in-vehicle conversations and cell phone usage have been linked to heightened risk for traffic violations and collisions. T...
How often do younger and older adults engage in monitoring? a new approach to studying metacognition 2018 51 Older adults demonstrate spared metacognitive monitoring abilities, despite cognitive decline in other domains. An extensive literature examines how accurately individuals engage in monitoring. The question of how often individuals engage in metacogn...
The role of schematic support in strategy choice during cognitive skill learning 2018 87 This study examines influences on strategic differences in skill learning that occur with increasing age. Older adults differ in their strategic approach to cognitive skill acquisition tasks, where their progression from slow algorithmic processing t...
