Two visual paired-comparison studies investigated the importance of a storyline for remembering short cartoon videos across a two-week delay in 18-month-old infants. In Study 1, infants were tested with either a “Storyline” version with full access to all movie elements including the unfolding storyline, or a “Pixelized” version where only the colors, luminance and general movies was preserved. Only the “Storyline” version led to a preference (familiarity) at test. Study 2 showed that disrupting the storyline while preserving static conceptual information did not lead to any preference either. Consequently, only full access to the storyline led to subsequent memory.
