Fuzzy-Trace Theory and Memory Development
Brainerd, C. J.; Reyna, V. F.
Developmental Review, v24 n4 p396-439 Dec 2004
We review recent applications of fuzzy-trace theory to memory development, organizing the presentation around two themes: the theory's explanatory principles and experimental findings about memory development that follow as predictions from those principles. The featured explanatory principles are: parallel storage of verbatim and gist traces, dissociated retrieval of verbatim and gist traces, differential survival rates for verbatim and gist traces, retrieval phenomenology, and developmental trends in verbatim and gist memory. The experimental findings come from four different areas of research: the development of retrieval phenomenologies, ''reversed'' developmental trends in false memory, the development of mere testing effects, and the development of false persistence in memory.
