Long-Term Memory Improvement: Confirmation of a Finding by Piaget
Preview not available

Abstract

Piaget has recently reported results indicating that children's memories of a patterned array of sticks improve over a 6-month period. Results reported here first of all confirm this finding, though not to the full extent Piaget found. Second, the improvement is apparently not due to a particular feature of the experimental procedure: E's focusing attention upon the size of the sticks during an intermediary session. Third, the improvement seems linked to the fact that the array is ordered and patterned. Several possible explanations of the phenomenon are discussed.
