Sex and practice distribution effects in children


Journal Article

The present study, involving 40 prepubescent children in a sex by practice distribution paradigm, completed an evidentiary basis for concluding that the reversal of sex dominance in psychomotor reminiscence tendencies across pubescence was paralleled by a reversal of sex dominance in relative gains from practice distribution. These and kindred results, when viewed against those from massed practice controls, supported the inference that sex dominance in reminiscence and related tendencies, whatever the developmental phase of the subjects, occurs because males and females release reaction inhibition (IR) at different rates. © 1978, Phychonomic Society, Inc..
