Abstract:
    Eighty young children (4-6 years old) were recruited to explore the relationship between their performance on a concentration game and visuospatial working memory. The children’s performance on the concentration game was significantly correlated with their visuospatial short-term memory (visual short-term memory and spatial short-term memory) and visuospatial working memory. Regression analyses revealed that visuospatial short-term memory explained variations in children’s performance on the concentration game after age and nonverbal ability were considered. Moreover, visuospatial working memory was a significant predictor of children’s performance on the concentration game, independent of age, nonverbal ability, and visuospatial short-term memory. Collectively, our data suggest that children’s performance on the concentration game is significantly associated with their visuospatial working memory related skills.
