CARNEIRO, Maria Paula. Memory development in children: what changes with age?. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2008, vol.21, n.1, pp. 51-59. ISSN 1678-7153. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722008000100007.
This article presents a review of the literature about memory development, organized according to the different storages or memory systems. The development in sensory memory, working memory, explicit memory and implicit memory is analysed from the preschool period on. Although significant changes take place in the working and explicit memory, the perceptual implicit memory remains invariant with age.
Keywords : Development; memory; memory systems; children.
