In 1995, Nelson explored the relation between early memory development and corresponding changes in brain development, and conceptualized this knowledge in a coherent theoretical framework (Nelson, 1995). In their review, Jabe's and Nelson provide an update of Nelson's 1995 cognitive neuroscience model of human memory development. In this article, the author's highlight the major changes in perspective after 20 years of advances in the understanding of the neural basis of memory, and advocate the need for more systematic investigations of memory processes across the lifespan, which combine different models and levels of analysis: from genes, to brain to behavior.
