Brainy babies: Research explores infants' skills and abilities

Brainy babies: Research explores infants' skills and abilities | psychology memory | Scoop.it

Do basic information processing skills in infancy have any bearing on later executive functioning skills in children? Infants were assessed for memory, processing speed, and attention at age 7-12 months and age 24-36 months. When they were 11 years old, the children returned to the lab and were assessed for various different kinds of executive functioning skills, including working memory, inhibition, and shifting.

Bilingual children have a better “working memory” than monolingual children

Bilingual children have a better “working memory” than monolingual children | psychology memory | Scoop.it

A study conducted at the University of Granada and the University of York in Toronto, Canada, has revealed that bilingual children develop a better working memory –which holds, processes and updates information over short periods of time– than monolingual children. The working memory plays a major role in the execution of a wide range of activities, such as mental calculation (since we have to remember numbers and operate with them) or reading comprehension (given that it requires associating the successive concepts in a text).

The objective of this study –which was published in the last issue of the Journal of Experimental Child Psychology– was examining how multilingualism influences the development of the “working memory” and investigating the association between the working memory and the cognitive superiority of bilingual people found in previous studies.
