Working Memory, Comprehension, and Aging: A Review and a New View
Automatic and effortful processes in memory.
Inhibitory control, circadian arousal, and age.
Is memory schematic
Support for the notion that what is stored is an abstracted representation of the original stimulus comes from studies that demonstrate that after a passage is read, it takes subjects the same amount of time to verify information originally presented in a complex linguistic format as it does to verify that same information present in a simpler format.
Synchrony effects in inhibitory control over thought and action.
Performance on 2 neuropsychological measures changes over the day, at least for older adults, and is correlated with inhibitory indexes, suggesting that for Older adults changes in inhibition may be mediated by circadian variations in frontal functioning.
Inhibitory Mechanisms and the Control of Attention
Studies of directed forgetting in older adults.
A variety of findings indicated that this age group is less able than younger adults to suppress the processing and retrieval of items designated as to be forgotten (TBF).
Inhibitory deficit theory: Recent developments in a "new view"
Age and reading: the impact of distraction.
Reading time measures indicated that compared with younger adults, older adults have a more difficult time ignoring the distracting information, particularly information meaningfully related to target text.
Working memory span and the role of proactive interference.
The results suggest that span is influenced by interference, that age differences in span may be due to Differences in the ability to overcome interference rather than to differences in capacity, and that interference plays an important role in the relation between span and other tasks.
