Short- and Long-Term Memory in Infancy and Early Childhood

Lisa M. Oakes and Patricia J. Bauer

This volume will focus on recent empirical and theoretical advances in the study of memory development in infancy and early childhood. Both short-term and long-term memory are critically important for infants' learning about the world around them, as well as their development and maintenance of social relationships. The volume will be organized along this important temporal dimension--the first section will focus on short-term memory and the second section will be focused on long-term memory. A major goal of the book is to address some of the most significant questions and concerns with the aim of identifying areas of consensus and areas in which further theoretical and empirical work is necessary. The volume will be an excellent resource for student and professional researchers in cognitive and developmental psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and cognitive science.
