Memory develops progressively from early childhood till late adolescence. But the process is fragile, and in the course of its development memory can face various types of dysfunction — whether pathological or not, permanent or temporary — which may impact the learning process and academic life in general.
In six chapters, illustrated with numerous examples, this book offers new data, based on recent research, plus a complete re-examination of the development of memory during childhood, to enable parents and teachers to give each child the best possible shot at academic success.
• A thorough review of the latest research on the functional mechanisms of memory, their progressive development during childhood, and on how the brain continues to mature till late adolescence.
• An accessible book for the non-specialist who wishes to understand how memory is organised: the main systems, the various phases of all mnemonic activities, the anatomical foundations of memory, the neurobiological mechanisms underlying brain development and its main phases.
