Coincident with developments in the temporal-cortical explicit memory network, long-term recall abilities are newly emergent late in the first year of human life. We recorded event-related potentials (ERPs) in 9-month-olds as an index of the integrity of the neural substrate underlying a task thought to reflect explicit memory, namely, deferred imitation. ERP measures of recognition memory 1 week after unique laboratory experiences predicted whether and how much infants recalled of the… Expand

Accounting for change in declarative memory: A cognitive neuroscience perspective.
TLDR
Age-related changes in encoding, retention, and retrieval in the context of current knowledge about the brain systems that may underlie these memory processes are considered. Expand

  • Psychological science
  • 2005
TLDR
Patterns of performance across test trials and in relearning implicate a decline in susceptibility to storage failure as the primary source of the observed developmental trend. Expand

  • P. Bauer
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Trends in Cognitive Sciences
  • 2006
TLDR
The emerging framework, which applies to episodic and autobiographical memory, highlights the essential developmental continuities in memory from infancy onwards and sheds new light on the phenomenon of childhood amnesia. Expand
Beyond initial encoding: measures of the post-encoding status of memory traces predict long-term recall during infancy.
TLDR
The findings highlight the need to consider post-encoding processes in explanations of variability in long-term memory during infancy by testing the absolute and relative contributions to long- term recall of encoding and post- encoding processes. Expand
Electrophysiological indices of memory for temporal order in early childhood: implications for the development of recollection.
TLDR
Age-related improvements in memory for temporal order despite similar levels of memory for the individual items themselves are revealed, and distributed, positive-going activity late in the waveform was associated with increases in recall of contextual details and the development of recollective processes.

Publisher Summary The development of declarative memory in infancy and early childhood is influenced by a number of different types of early experiences. For much of the history of research inExpand
Electrophysiological Investigation of Source Memory in Early Childhood
TLDR
This study is unique in that it is the first to provide information regarding the spatiotemporal dynamics of the neural networks underlying recollection during early childhood. Expand
Electrophysiological Indexes of Encoding and Behavioral Indexes of Recall: Examining Relations and Developmental Change Late in the First Year of Life
TLDR
This reasearch combines electrophysiological (event-related potential [ERP]) and behavioral (deferred imitation) measures of encoding and recall, respectively, in an examination of age-related changes in and relations between encode and recall during this time. Expand
Long-Term Memory in Infancy. Electrophysiological and Behavioral Measures of Declarative Memory in 14-Month-Olds.
This paper presents a pilot study investigating the development of declarative memory in infancy, by creating a stimulus material appropriate for recording Event-Related Potentials (ERPs) duringExpand
Human memory development and its dysfunction after early hippocampal injury
TLDR
It is proposed that normal development involves a sequence in which a form of semantic-like memory emerges first, whereas the characteristics of episodic memory develop only later with progressive development of the hippocampus, such that memory skills cannot develop beyond the stage of semantic memories.

Long–Term Recall Memory: Behavioral and Neuro–Developmental Changes in the First 2 Years of Life
Until not long ago, psychologists conceptually and methodologically linked the capacity for recall of the past to developments in language. With the advent of a nonverbal measure of recall, thisExpand

TLDR
The results support the idea that the system that underlies long-term ordered recall emerges near the end of the 1st year of life, as infants' memory abilities were tested between the ages of 9 and 16 months. Expand
Parameters of remembering and forgetting in the transition from infancy to early childhood.
TLDR
Age-related effects were particularly apparent on children's ordered recall, and across the entire age range, the children were similarly affected by the variables of sequence type, opportunity for imitation, and verbal reminding. Expand

TLDR
Evidence is gathered that children in the one- to two-year age range are able to recall specific events, leading to rejection of the traditional assumption of a mnemonically incompetent one-to-two-year-old and impetus for identification of the factors that maintain the accessibility of early memories over the transition from infancy to early childhood.

Making the Past Present: Later Verbal Accessibility of Early Memories
A major question in the literature regarding memory development is whether memories of events from early in life are later accessible to verbal report. In a controlled study, we examined thisExpand
When the event is more than the sum of its parts: 9-month-olds' long-term ordered recall.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, as a group, 9-month-olds are able to recall target actions after delays of five weeks, however, after this long delay, only 45% of the infants recalled the temporal order of the events, as well as the individual actions in them. Expand
Reexposure breeds recall: effects of experience on 9-month-olds' ordered recall.
TLDR
On the basis of three experiences, 9-month-olds recall specific events after one month, and presumably as a function of reexposure after one week, infants recalled the individual actions of the events one month later. Expand

Relating Hippocampal Circuitry to Function Recall of Memory Sequences by Reciprocal Dentate–CA3 Interactions
TLDR
It is proposed that contextual information arriving become habituated to a repetitive stimulus but respond through the perforant path enables a subset CA3 cells to respond vigorously when the standard stimulus is replaced by (and perhaps also mossy cells). Expand
The development of forgetting and reminiscence.
TLDR
A framework (disintegration/redintegation theory) is described that provides a conceptual environment within which research on memory development questions can progress and reinterprets processes such as storage failure, retrieval failure, restorage, and retrieval relearning in terms of levels of featural integration in traces.
