Project Details


Memory is a crucial psychological process for individual, professional, academic, recreational and social performance, as well as in the construction of identity.
identity construction. There are multiple ways to evaluate it. In Colombia, studies have been conducted in healthy children to evaluate specific types of memory in Barranquilla, Medellín, Cali and Bucaramanga, as well as studies of global memory evaluation in Manizales and Medellín. Given the lack of studies aimed at the global evaluation of memory in school children without developmental disorders in Bogotá, and the importance of characterizing the development of the memory process in childhood as a determining factor in skills, it is necessary to evaluate the characteristics of memory in this population and the sociodemographic factors that may influence it.

For this purpose, the performance in memory tests in first and fifth grade children from public and private schools in Bogota will be described by means of the Child Neuropsychological Evaluation (ENI), which evaluates the auditory verbal memory through a list of words of animal categories, fruits and body parts; the memory of a text or logical memory; the visual memory through a list of geometric figures; and the deferred recall of memory through spontaneous retrieval of lists of words, keys and complex figures. In addition, a sociodemographic data survey and the BASC questionnaire for parents and teachers will be carried out, since it assesses
factors that may influence performance in memory tests.
