The Onset of Working Memory in Infants
Reznick, J. Steven; Morrow, Judy D.; Goldman, Barbara Davis; Snyder, Jessica
Infancy, v6 n1 p145-154 Jul 2004
We used an optimized configuration of the delayed-response task to explore the ability of young infants to remember which of 2 locations was correct across 12 trials after a 1- to 2-sec delay. Performance improved with age, particularly after 5.5 months. These findings suggest an onset of appreciable working memory for many infants in the middle of their 6th month. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
