Abstract [en]

Th result of recognition tests on 4- and 6-year-olds resulted in a forgetting curve for 6-year olds over 48 h, but not for 4-year-olds, who kept the same level of correct recognition.

A tentative exmplanation is that the older children were more mentally active during the longer retention intervals, causing more false trails than the youger children. The older children, may be more active over time in processing  the material to a much greater degree, for instance in categorizing the animals. Thereby, the 6-year-olds may loose some of the specificity of the perceptual traces over time, making presented and distraction animals less distinct from one another. Thememories of the  4-year olds are then thought to remain more stabe, as they do not get re-processed in the same manner.
