As indexed by measures of memory span. However, while memory span shows only small differences favoring young adults (often statistically non-significant), when an active manipulation of the information in STM is required substantial age effects emerge. For example, if the individual is required to repeat a string of random digits in the reverse order from their presentation, young do significantly better than older adults. This decrement might be attributed to a division of attention, necessary when one must both hold the items in store and operate on them so as to reverse the order, and so not be regarded as a deficit of primary memory (Craik, 1977).

For example, if one had begun, 40 years ago, to track one cohort of young adults and to explore their attitudes toward pre-marital sex and divorce, one would probably have seen a steady shift toward more permissive attitudes toward both as these individuals grew older. While this shift is correlated with increasing age, it cannot be causally attributed to the change in age. Presumably the researcher would have realized, in this example, that the whole society has shown such a steady shift, and so it is more likely that the changes in attitudes seen in the study sample were due to socio-cultural changes (from one time of testing to another) Basic Concepts 17 rather than due to the aging of the sample.
