Three researchers at columbia university—eric bonsang, vergad skirbekk, and ursula staudinger—decided to investigate age-related gender differences in episodic memory by comparing data from different countries in 2017, they culled pertinent information from nationally-representative surveys conducted in 27 nations.
The present study examined gender and age group differences in episodic memory with respect to the type of task in addition, these subgroup differences were also analysed in visual working memory.
Likewise, forrester and geffen (1991) found no gender differences on an auditory learning task for 40 girls and 40 boys between the ages of 7 and 15 based on these results, it is unclear whether gender differences in memory test performance in children and adolescents really do exist. Episodic memory highlighted the fact that many aspects of episodic memory had been widely ignored maccoby and j acklin's comments on gender differences in learning and memory clearly reflected this gap in our knowledge while maccoby and jacklin were able to discuss how men and women performed on list-learning experi-ments, they had nothing to say about gender differences for a whole.
Despite evidence that gender differences exist in working memory, there is an equally strong case for a lack of performance differences in recent years, as functional neuroimaging has become more commonplace, studies that do not find explicit behavioral differences have the opportunity to view more intrinsic neurofunctional patterns. Gender differences in autobiographical memory have been widely reported in this study, those differences were considered with regard to episodic and semantic memory, and encoding and retrieval participants reported memory narratives of two events that had occurred within a day of the report.
Psychologists determine significant sex differences in episodic memory, a type of long-term memory based on personal experiences, favoring women specific results indicated that women excelled in verbal episodic memory tasks, such as remembering words, objects, pictures or everyday events, and men outperformed women in remembering symbolic, non-linguistic information, known as visuospatial processing. Episodic memory refers to remembering the things we do, the people we meet, the stuff we read or see on tv—in short, all the things we experience directly episodic memory is sometimes referred.
Despite differences by gender in neurological organization of cognitive functions (kolb & whishaw, 1996), there is a common substrate to memory across gender.
