Being able to retrieve memories in the presence of differing cues (across people, contexts, stimulus features) helps avoid unnecessary re-learning when potentially useful knowledge is already stored in memory. In this talk I will discuss research with the deferred imitation paradigm examining how infants attend to dynamic learning events and how maturation and environmental experiences shape the flexibility of the memory representation.
