Age differences in implicit learning of higher order dependencies in serial patterns.
3 experiments examined serial pattern learning in younger and older adults. Unlike the usual repeating pattern, the sequences alternated between events from a repeating pattern and those determinedExpand

Age‐related differences in multiple measures of white matter integrity: A diffusion tensor imaging study of healthy aging
Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) measures diffusion of molecular water, which can be used to calculate indices of white matter integrity. Early DTI studies of aging primarily focused on two globalExpand

Implicit sequence learning: effects of level of structure, adult age, and extended practice.
The influence of structure and age on sequence learning was investigated by testing 24 young and 24 older participants for 10 sessions in an alternating serial response time task in which patternExpand

Sleep Does Not Benefit Probabilistic Motor Sequence Learning
It has become widely accepted that sleep-dependent consolidation occurs for motor sequence learning based on studies using finger-tapping tasks. Studies using another motor sequence learning taskExpand

Intact implicit learning of spatial context and temporal sequences in childhood autism spectrum disorder.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is defined by atypicalities in domains that are posited to rely on implicit learning processes such as social communication, language, and motor behavior. The authorsExpand

Sleep has no critical role in implicit motor sequence learning in young and old adults
The influence of sleep on motor skill consolidation has been a research topic of increasing interest. In this study, we distinguished general skill learning from sequence-specific learning in aExpand

Dyslexics are impaired on implicit higher-order sequence learning, but not on implicit spatial context learning
Developmental dyslexia is characterized by poor reading ability and impairments on a range of tasks including phonological processing and processing of sensory information. Some recent studies haveExpand

Serial pattern learning by event observation.
Serial pattern learning was investigated in a variation of the task introduced by Nissen and Bullemer (1987). We presented an asterisk at 1 of 4 spatial locations on each trial, and Ss eitherExpand

Implicit spatial contextual learning in healthy aging.
Three experiments investigated the aging of implicit spatial and spatiotemporal context learning in 2 tasks. In contextual cuing, people learn to use repeated spatial configurations to facilitateExpand

Age differences in learning serial patterns: direct versus indirect measures.
Adult age differences in learning and retention of a nonverbal sequence were examined using the serial reaction-time task of Nissen and Bullemer (1987), with 20 younger and 20 older Ss. An asteriskExpand
