Integrative and semantic relations equally alleviate age-related associative memory deficits.
Two experiments compared effects of integrative and semantic relations between pairs of words on lexical and memory processes in old age. Integrative relations occur when two dissimilar andExpand
What you know can influence what you are going to know (especially for older adults)
Stimuli related to an individual’s knowledge/experience are often more memorable than abstract stimuli, particularly for older adults. This has been found when material that is congruent withExpand
When does prior knowledge disproportionately benefit older adults’ memory?
ABSTRACT Material consistent with knowledge/experience is generally more memorable than material inconsistent with knowledge/experience – an effect that can be more extreme in older adults. FourExpand
Age-related associative deficits are absent with nonwords.
Words and nonwords were used as stimuli to assess item and associative recognition memory performance in young and older adults. Participants were presented with pairs of items and then tested onExpand
Replicating distinctive facial features in lineups: identification performance in young versus older adults
Criminal suspects with distinctive facial features, such as tattoos or bruising, may stand out in a police lineup. To prevent suspects from being unfairly identified on the basis of their distinctiveExpand
Word frequency influences on the list length effect and associative memory in young and older adults
ABSTRACT Many studies show that age deficits in memory are smaller for information supported by pre-experimental experience. Many studies also find dissociations in memory tasks between words thatExpand

BackgroundPeople who suffer from myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) often report that their eye movements are sluggish and that they have difficulties tracking movingExpand
Vision-related symptoms as a clinical feature of chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis? Evidence from the DePaul Symptom Questionnaire
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) or myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) is a debilitating disorder, affecting at least 250 000 people in the UK. Marked by debilitating fatigue, its aetiology is poorlyExpand
Effects of Time of Day on Age-Related Associative Deficits
Time of day is known to influence cognition differently across age groups, with young adults performing better later than earlier in the day and older adults showing the opposite pattern. ThusExpand
