Strategic memory: Preschoolers' encoding of color categories so just an updated version of all the other presentation which were brainstorming presentations. In this work we are interested in exploring how assumptions about the future accessibility of  information will impact memory. Thus will children have enhanced memory for colors they believe they won't have access to in the future and less of a memory for  those that they believe they will have access to. Furthermore, we in interested in seeing if memory for color will regresses to the mean of that color category. We have seen this to the case in adults showing that adults rely of previous experience with a particular color to help remember a specific instance of the color.
