Cowan, Nelson; Nugent, Lara D.; Elliott, Emily M.; Saults, J. Scott
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v76 n2 p151-72 Jun 2000
Examined persistence of sensory memory by studying developmental differences in recall of attended and ignored lists of digits for second-graders, fifth-graders, and adults. Found developmental increase in the persistence of memory only for the final item in an ignored list, which is the item for which sensory memory is thought to be the most vivid at short retention intervals.
