      LAURA E.LEVINE: Cognitive developmentis how we think and learn, and how that changes as we grow.One aspect of that is memory.So I'm going to give you a little test for your memory.I'm going to show you a picture thathas a number of items in it.And I want you to spend about 30 seconds trying to remember what

      LAURA E.LEVINE [continued]: What you focus on and how you try to rememberare two aspects that are important that I'mgoing to ask you about.For Jean Piaget, memory related to cognitive schemas,those are how we organize our experiences.I want you now to write down whatyou remember of those items that we showed you before.

      LAURA E.LEVINE [continued]: The items that you remembered reflect your schemas.The particular items may have some relevance, to youand you may organize them in a certain way.And that's why you remembered those and others.Another theory of cognitive developmentis called information processing.And that has more to do with how we go about trying to remember.

      LAURA E.LEVINE [continued]: So think about how you tried to rememberthe items we showed you.Did you try to repeat them over and over again?Did you make up a story with them?Maybe you even made up a song with them.These are all called encoding devices.What and how we remember changes through childhood

      LAURA E.LEVINE [continued]: as our brain develops, and as we have different experiences.
