Carolyn Rovee-Collier is a Professor of Psychology at Rutgers University. She is a pioneer and an internationally-renowned expert in cognitive development. She is also recognized as the founder of infant long-term memory research. Her research focuses on learning and memory in pre-verbal infants. In her research, she uses operant and deferred imitation procedures to study latent learning (how new information is integrated with old information), and how memory retrieval affects future retention. Rovee-Collier has authored 200 articles and chapters and a 2001 book (with Hayne and Colombo), The development of implicit and explicit memory,[2] and has received recognition for her research accomplishments from various organizations.[3]
