Abstract

The purpose of this study was to: (1) investigate the impact of directive task instructions on the ability to convey main events in pictured stimuli with healthy, older adults and (2) to establish session-to-session reliability of the main event measure using different task instructions. The main event measure was designed to quantify participants’ abilities to express the relations and causal links depicted in the pictured stimuli. Stimuli included Nicholas and Brookshire’s (1993) two single pictures and two picture sequences. Statistical analyses revealed that manipulating task instructions significantly affected the proportion of main events produced by healthy older adults.
