Improving Associative and Item Memory For Brands Among Elderly Consumers

Two studies examine the effects of aging on associative and item memory for brand information. Results show that more (vs. less) meaningful brand logos and related (vs. unrelated) brand names and brand logos help improve recognition memory among elderly consumers. Results also yield interesting differences between elderly and younger consumers.
