This study used delayed nonmatching to sample (DNMS) to test the recognition memory function dependent on the medial temporal lobe. Results from three conditions of DNMS tests with 9- and 12-month-olds suggest that the critical late-maturing competence accounting for DNMS success is the ability to understand that the stimulus is a symbol or marker for the reward.
