Sex differences in serial learning for aged persons with high verbal ability

Journal Article

Serial rote learning was examined in men and women with high verbal ability aged 60-74 years. No sex differences were found in total errors, commission errors, or omissions errors. The results are in accord with the findings reported in a study by Wilkie and Eisdorfer (1977) and suggest that high verbal ability may, in part, mediate sex differences in serial learning.
