The Collection Game
We are examining how children’s memory capacities develop. Children link related experiences to make novel inferences and store general knowledge. They also form memories for specific instances and events. Both kinds of memory play crucial roles in the development of an adaptive memory system. We aim to chart their development profiles from early to middle childhood. Children will first view child-friendly images of characters with different backgrounds and objects. We will then ask about their memories for the general ideas and the specifics of the images.
Eligibility criteria include: ages from 3 to 8 years, normal or corrected-to-normal corrected vision, native English speakers.
Experiment information: 1 one-hour session administered via Zoom. An optional greet-and-meet between the parent and the experimenter can be scheduled prior to the experiment session.
