Development of Episodic Memory: Which Dog Did I See - and Where and When Did I See It?
Episodic memory relies on memory for the relations among multiple elements of an event (relational memory) and the ability to discriminate among similar episodes (pattern separation). However, research on pattern separation has been done primarily with young and older adults. In this talk, Nora Newcombe will describe new tasks designed to assess both relational memory and pattern separation, which have been used with 4- and 6- year-olds, young adults and aging adults.
