Editorial Reviews

Review

"Describing a wealth of empirical evidence, this volume provides a comprehensive, authoritative and very up to date account of research into children's memory." - Jackie Andrade, Professor of Psychology, University of Plymouth, UK

"This edited volume presents a balanced, up-to-date account of memory development from infancy through childhood. Each chapter focuses on a currently-active area of research, ranging from the crib to the courtroom, from cognitive neuroscience to sociocultural influences. Both researchers and students will find the book clear and readable." - Patricia H. Miller, Professor and Department Head of Psychology University of Georgia, USA

"The editors have assembled outstanding chapters from leading researchers on all aspects of the study of memory development. There is added value because all of the chapters address practical concerns as well as theoretical issues. Because of the importance of memory development, these reviews of cutting edge research will benefit all teachers and researchers in child development." – Rachel Keen, Department of Psychology, University of Virginia, USA
