In this talk I will illustrate the various approaches we have adopted as a means of studying memory in infants and young children. Here I will draw from our work with both typically developing children and those who have might have incurred neurological insults as a means of examing the ontogeny of memory. Work using both event-related potentials and functional magnetic resoance imaging will be highlighted.
