Verbal and visuo-spacial short-term and working memory in children : are they separable ?

Alloway, T. P. and Gathercole, S. E. and Pickering, S. J. (2006) 'Verbal and visuo-spacial short-term and working memory in children : are they separable ?', Child development., 77 (6). pp. 1698-1716.

Abstract

This study explored the structure of verbal and visuospatial short-term and working memory in children between ages 4 and 11 years. Multiple tasks measuring 4 different memory components were used to capture the cognitive processes underlying working memory. Confirmatory factor analyses indicated that the processing component of working memory tasks was supported by a common resource pool, while storage aspects depend on domain-specific verbal and visuospatial resources. This model is largely stable across this developmental period, although some evidence exists that the links between the domain-specific visuospatial construct and the domain-general processing construct were higher in the 4- to- 6-year age group. The data also suggest that all working memory components are in place by 4 years of age.
