Age Differences in Memory Span
Chi, Michelene T. H.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 23, 2, 266-281, Apr 77

Five-year-olds recalled fewer items than adults in memory-span tasks involving both familiar and unfamiliar faces, even though the use of rehearsal and recoding strategies was minimized for adults.
