Despite early speculations that young infants are unable to form memories, since the 1950s developmental scientists have documented amazing memory abilities in infancy and explored how these abilities develop. This research on memory development in infancy and early childhood has recently moved in exciting new directions. Extensions of work on memory systems in adults and the use of behavioral and neuroscience methods to study early developing memory abilities have lead to an explosion of ideas about the neural underpinnings of memory, its development, and the mechanisms involved in these developmental changes. This book focuses on recent empirical and theoretical advances in the study of memory development in infancy and early childhood and on mechanisms of developmental change. Its chapters allow readers to compare and contrast contemporary views of memory development, and gain an understanding of what we do and do not yet know about how memory develops in early childhood.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
". . . a well-integrated vision of memory processes from infancy through the preschool period. In the best tradition of developmental science, the chapters connect this developmental work in a meaningful way with the literature on adult memory, and they provide a substantive treatment of individual differences." —John Colombo, Professor of Psychology and Associate Director of Cognitive Neuroscience, Schiefelbusch Institute for Life Span Studies, University of Kansas

". . . By providing a venue for the discussion of findings, methods, underlying assumptions, points of agreement and disagreement, and gaps in our understanding, Oakes and Bauer have produced a book that not only defines what we know about early memory and its development, but also articulates how we have come to know it and what we still need to know. This is an exceptional volume, one that should be required reading for anyone interested in memory and cognitive development." — Peter A. Ornstein, F. Stuart Chapin Professor of Psychology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"This is an impressive survey of progress in understanding memory development in the first few years of life. The strong focus throughout the book on change mechanisms, both neural and behavioral, is especially praiseworthy." —Robert Siegler, Teresa Heinz Professor of Cognitive Psychology, Carnegie Mellon University

"This is an outstanding collection that goes beyond the usual limitations of edited volumes." —Philip David Zelazo, Professor and Canada Research Chair in Developmental Neuroscience, Department of Psychology, University of Toronto
