Summary

An exploration of memory formation in young children

Parameters of Remembering and Forgetting in the Transition from Infancy to Early Childhood details research findings related to long-term memory formation in young children. While it has long been assumed that adults do not retain memories of their infancy, this study explores the possibility that long-term memories do form, and may manifest in different ways as a child matures. This book explores the study's methods, events, and analysis of results, with extensive appendices that provide additional information regarding the testing system, analysis parameters and control, and the specifics of research design that allayed effects on the participants' performance.
