The primacy effect in young children verbal fact or spatial artifact

, : The primacy effect in young children verbal fact or spatial artifact. Child Development 47(1): 242-247

Children, 5-7 yr old, were tested in a serial position recall task under 2 conditions. In 1 condition, which replicated the procedure typically used, the spatial and temporal components were completely confounded; in the other, the spatial and temporal components were experimentally separated. The spatial component of the typical serial position recall task, rather than the use of rehearsal, was largely responsible for the primacy effect found in the serial position curves of young children.

Number facts are commonly assumed to be verbally stored in an associative multiplication fact retrieval network. Prominent evidence for this assumption comes from so-called operand-related errors (e.g., 4 × 6 = 28). However, little is known about...

Spatial learning of transgenic mice is often assessed in the Morris watermaze, where mice must use distant cues to locate a submerged platform. Such learning is confounded by species-specific noncognitive swimming strategies. Factor analysis permi...
