Investigating Memory Development in Children and Infantile Amnesia in Adults
Kazemi Tari, Somayeh
Online Submission
Although many researchers have worked on memory development, still little is known about what develops in memory development. When one reviews the literature about memory, she encounters many types of memories such as short term vs. long term memory, working memory, explicit vs. implicit memory, trans-saccadic memory, autobiographical memory, semantic vs. episodic memory, flashbulb memory, verbal memory, and so many other types of memory which are intended to describe the memory processes. But can all these terms thoroughly explain what goes on in memory? Do these terms imply anything about the capacity of memory or about the role of language in memory development? If we could answer the questions about the memory capacity and the role of such factors as language in memory development, we might be able to find the answers to still more interesting and more challenging questions about memory, i.e., what actually develops in memory development and what causes the enigma of infantile amnesia. The purpose of the present research was, then, to find the solutions to the problem of infantile amnesia.
