TLDR
Comparisons of the age-related norms on the list learning and design learning tasks from the Adult Memory and Information Processing Battery and its successor, the BIRT (Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust) Memory and information Processing Battery, indicate that there is a significant Flynn effect on tests of memory function.
Cohort differences on the CVLT-II and CVLT3: Evidence of a negative Flynn effect on the attention/working memory and learning trials
TLDR
Evidence of a negative Flynn effect on the attention/working memory and learning trials is revealed and the clinical implications for using word list learning and memory tests like the CVLT, and the potential role of socioenvironmental factors on the observednegative Flynn effect are discussed.
Are Educated Better in Cognition than Their Ancestors? An Indian Flynn Effect Study
Flynn Effect (FE) deals with the issue of how the general scores of a population change over time. The existing cognitive test was developed in 1976 and since then there have been a lot of
PATTERNS OF AGE-RELATED IQ CHANGES FROM THE WAIS TO WAIS-III AFTER ADJUSTING FOR THE FLYNN EFFECT
Previous studies have found that the Flynn effect accounts for at least 48%, and as much as 100%, of the difference between norms for 20and 70-year-olds on the Wechsler intelligence tests (Dickinson
Cognitive development and educational attainment across the life span
In this thesis I explore two strands of research: in the first half I explore the effects of language learning on brain structure and cognitive function. In the second half I study to what extent

Selective adult age differences in an age-invariant multifactor model of declarative memory.
TLDR
The results support the view that episodic memory is more age sensitive than semantic memory, but they also indicate that aging has differential effects within these 2 forms of memory.
Memory and Working-with-Memory: A Component Process Model Based on Modules and Central Systems
  • M. Moscovitch
  • Psychology, Biology
    Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience
  • 1992
TLDR
The usefulness of the modular/central system construct is explored and evidence from studies of normal, amnesic, agnosic, and demented people is provided to support the model.
Training of Working Memory in Children With ADHD
Working memory (WM) capacity is the ability to retain and manipulate information during a short period of time. This ability underlies complex reasoning and has generally been regarded as a fixed
Functional Neuroanatomy of Recall and Recognition: A PET Study of Episodic Memory
TLDR
Compared to reading, both recall and recognition were associated with higher blood flow (activation) at identical sites in the right prefrontal cortex and the anterior cingulate, suggesting that these components of the cerebello-frontal pathway play a role in recall processes that they do not in recognition.
Stability, growth, and decline in adult life span development of declarative memory: cross-sectional and longitudinal data from a population-based study.
TLDR
The results show that age trajectories for episodic and semantic memory differ and underscore the need to control for cohort and retest effects in cross-sectional and longitudinal studies, respectively.
Verbal fluency and executive dysfunction in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
Training, maturation, and genetic influences on the development of executive attention.
TLDR
Overall, the data suggest that the executive attention network appears to develop under strong genetic control, but that it is subject to educational interventions during development.
What is intelligence ? Beyond the Flynn effect
Around their 18th birthday, basically all Dutch males born between 1934 and 1964 unknowingly took part in a study of the malleability of intelligence. When these young men appeared before the Dutch
