Abstract

<p>This study evaluated the influence of age, gender, race, and education on learning and memory in older persons. Free and Cued Selective Reminding (FCSR) was administered to a community-based sample of 216 Caucasian and 50 African American seniors as part of a larger medical and neuropsychological battery. Although age, education, and gender influenced FCSR performance, race did not. The study suggests that memory performance is not influenced by race and that race-adjustment may not be necessary in the norming of memory tests.</p>
