Abstract

Across the age range of 7–13 years, younger and older children showed equivalent immediate retention and equivalent long-term forgetting in picture recognition. But older children were better than younger children in reconstructing from memory an arrangement of six to nine picture cards. These results are interpreted in terms of different developmental patterns for different component processes in memory tasks.
