Developmental Differences in Medial Temporal Lobe Function during Memory Encoding
There are changes in the functional organization of the MTL, such that the hippocampus and posterior parahippocampal gyrus become increasingly specialized for recollection; these changes may be in part responsible for long-term memory improvements during childhood. Expand
A Prospective Study of Memory for Child Sexual Abuse
Failure to report CSA should not necessarily be interpreted as evidence that the abuse is inaccessible to memory, although inaccessibility or forgetting cannot be ruled out in a subset of cases. Expand
The development of recollection and familiarity in childhood and adolescence: evidence from the dual-process signal detection model.
Overall, recollection and familiarity showed distinct developmental and functional characteristics and the dual-process signal detection model proved promising for developmental investigations. Expand
Structural development of the hippocampus and episodic memory: developmental differences along the anterior/posterior axis.
Examination of age-related differences in volumes of the hippocampal head, body, and tail and collected episodic memory measures in children ages 8-11 years and young adults suggests that protracted development of hippocampal subregions contribute to age- related differences in episodi memory.

Traumatic Impact Predicts Long-Term Memory for Documented Child Sexual Abuse
Understanding an event's traumatic impact is important for predicting the accuracy of long-term memory for reported CSA, and Severity of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptomatology was positively associated with memory accuracy. Expand
Memory for nonoccurrences: The role of metacognition
Abstract How do we know that an event did not happen? An intuitively appealing account is that individuals use the perceived memorability of an event, in conjunction with failure to retrieve anyExpand
Reactions to youth crime: perceptions of accountability and competency.
The type and outcome of the crime were major motivating factors in sentencing decisions and perceptions of legal competence, and, although younger offenders were seen as less accountable and less competent than older offenders, sentence allocation and attitudes towards punishment were not significantly affected by offender age.

Developmental differences in hippocampal and cortical contributions to episodic retrieval
The view that the development of episodic memory is supported by functional changes in the hippocampus as well as in other critical cortical regions is supported. Expand

  • 7 June 2012
It is argued that hippocampus-mediated binding continues to develop during middle childhood along with other cortical regions in the prefrontal and parietal cortex and the role of hippocampal projections to and from cortical regions is underscore. Expand
Volume of hippocampal subfields and episodic memory in childhood and adolescence
Age-related differences in hippocampal subfields and correlations between subfield volumes and episodic memory are examined and subfield development appears to follow a protracted developmental trajectory, and likely plays a pivotal role in episodicMemory development. Expand
