Relationships between socioeconomic status and recognition and recall memory were explored in a sample of72 infants at 6-,9-, and 12-months-ofage. Socioeconomic status was disentangled into household annual income, parental education, and parental subjective social status to test their individual associations with recognition and recall memory function. Findings suggest differential effects on recognition memory in 6 month olds, and recall memory in 12 month olds, based on income, education, and subjective social status. Discussion points to a larger sample size with an older age group as next steps in the analyses.
