Originally published in 1978, the contributors to this volume offer here chapters and position papers concerned with children’s memory. The chapters represent in-depth reports on children’s sensory memory, rehearsal processes, and organizational processes, as well as treatments of constructive aspects of children’s memory, the representational-development hypothesis, and memory in pre-schoolers. The position papers address critical issues confronting researchers in memory development, including the developmental implications of multistore and levels-of-processing models of memory, as well as distinctions between semantic and episodic memory, recall and recognition, and deliberate and nondeliberate aspects of children’s memory.

An historical overview provides an introduction to the volume, leading the reader to the very latest in new directions of research in this area at the time. This volume will be of interest to all concerned with the development of memory in children.

Memory is one of the core areas of academic research in cognitive psychology. Psychology Library Editions: Memory brings together a series of previously out-of-print titles, available as a 27-volume set or as individual volumes. The authors come from diverse backgrounds and many of them are now leading experts in their fields. The majority of titles were originally published in the 1970s and 1980s and reflect early research in a number of key areas. The volumes cover topics such as memory development in children; memory and aging; memory and thinking; memory and language; working memory; and memory disorders, to name but a few.
