Attentional contributions to children’s limited visual short-term memory capacity: developmental change and its neural mechanisms

Abstract:

It is increasingly recognised that, in adulthood, attentional control plays an important role in optimising the ability to encode and maintain items in visual short-term memory (VSTM). Memory capacity limits increase dramatically over childhood, but the mechanisms through which children guide attention to maximise VSTM remain poorly understood. Through a number of experiments manipulating different parameters, the current thesis aimed to explore the developmental trajectories of the neuroc...
