Mediated Imitation in 6-Month-Olds: Remembering by Association.

Two experiments examined whether associating an imitation task with an operant task affected 6-month-olds' memory for either task. Results indicated that infants successfully imitated a puppet's action for up to 2 weeks only if the associated operant task (pressing a lever to activate a miniature train) was retrieved first. Follow-up study revealed that the learned association was bidirectional. (Author/KB)
