Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine age differences on a quantitative measure of
discourse as well as session-to-session reliability of this measure. The measure included
proportion of main events told; a measure of participants’ abilities to convey an
understanding of the relationships between concepts depicted in the picture stimuli.
Stimuli included Nicholas and Brookshire’s (1993) single pictures and picture sequences.
Participants included younger and older adults without brain damage. Statistical analyses
revealed that age did not influence performance. Further, results indicated that proportion
of main events was stable across sessions for both groups.
