Chuah, Y. M. Lisa; Maybery, Murray T.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v73 n1 p7-44 May 1999
Used a variance-partitioning procedure to identify age-related and age-invariant components of verbal and spatial memory span in 6- to 12-year olds. Concluded that verbal and spatial short-term memory appear to rely on similar processes when serial recall is required and that development in span is closely tied to increases in processing speed.
