Logical Operations and Sentence Memory in Children.
Barclay, J. Richard; Reid, Marylou
Research has indicated that across the second to fifth grade range, there was evidence to suggest a difference between the oldest and youngest groups in the memory representations which directed recall of logically related sentences. The developmental trend was from what seemed to be an unstable and fragmentary memory rperesentation, which included inconsistent and contradictory information, toward a more stable, unified, and internally consistent representation which embodied both expressed and inferred information.
