An 8 page paper that presents the experimental findings of two studies on encoding specificity, then designs a third experimental proposal. The experiment proposed looks at the impact of age on encoding specificity and attempts to disprove Salthouse's belief that there is a direct correlation between age-memory decreases and limited encoding specificity. The thesis of this experiment suggests that other factors, including an abundance of prior knowledge, is the cause of what appears to be an age-bias.
