The Development of Mental Processing
integrates several psychological approaches in order to create a more
comprehensive theoretical system. This system is tested through a
longitudinal study of children 8 to 16 years of age, where findings show
that it is ones efficiency at processing information, which has the
greatest impact on the development of the working memory. This working
memory, in turn, becomes the underlying factor determining individual
differences in thinking.
Study presenting a developing comprehensive theorhetical system and showing its evolution.
Includes commentary by Kurt Fischer and Theo Dawson.
An interesting monograph for both students and researchers about the process of theory creation as much as the study's findings.
