Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a non invasive technique to investigate complex memory processes and their neuronal correlates. Though numerous research studies have been conducted in adults, data are still scarce in children. We firstly sum up the specific constraints of fMRI memory investigations in children, and we subsequently report the few studies published in the paediatric population.
