Effects of Different Types of Schematic Support on Item and Associative Memory For Brands in Older Consumers

We show across two studies in a branding context that different types of schematic support alleviate episodic memory deficits in elderly consumers differently. While meaningfulness of brand elements attenuates item (vs. associative) memory deficits in older (vs. younger) consumers, relatedness between brand elements mitigates differences in associative (vs. item) memory.
