Independent Paths in the Development of Infant Learning and Forgetting.
Howe, Mark L.; Courage, Mary L.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v67 n2 p131-63 Nov 1997
Used path analysis in two experiments to examine possibility that age difference in infants' long-term retention were artifacts of correlated differences in learning rates or learning opportunities. Found that developmental declines in forgetting rates between 12 and 18 months were independent of developmental differences in learning. Age differences in forgetting rates were not confounded with age differences in overlearning. (Author)
