Remembering Specific Episodes of a Scripted Event.

Two experiments investigated 4- to 7-year olds' memory for a specific episode of a repeated event. In Experiment 1, younger children had more difficulty remembering when a new activity type had been experienced, although experience improved memory for schema-atypical activities introduced in repeated events. Experiment 2 showed younger children could remember changes when the standard event was simplified. (JPB)
