Abstract

SERIAL ROTE VERBAL LEARNING UNDER FAST (4 SEC.) AND SLOW (10 SEC.) PACING WAS ADMINISTERED TO 6 GROUPS OF AGED MEN OVER 60 (MEAN AGE = 67.8, N = 54) UNDER 3 LEVELS OF EXPERIMENTAL STRESS. MAXIMAL EFFECTS OF INDUCED STRESS INCLUDING RESPONSE INHIBITION WERE PREDICTED FOR SLOWER PACING. RESULTS CONFIRMED THE HYPOTHESIS AND SUGGEST THAT THE INCREASED LEARNING AND RESPONSIVITY OF AGED SS WITH LONGER EXPOSURE DURATION MAY BE A FUNCTION OF ANXIETY REDUCTION.
