Cognitive Development in Children: Five Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development.
Society for Research in Child Development.
Five conference reports that originally appeared as monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development concern cognition in young children. Included in a section on thought are articles on Piaget and his theories, computer simulation on human thinking, and an information processing theory of intellectual development. The development of perception, mediating responses, verbal factors in discrimination, styles of conceptualization, equivalence transformations, mathematical models, and Soviet research are discussed. Six articles consider language acquisition (the development of grammar, syntax, verbal behavior, linguistic structure, and nonaphasic disorders), while seven describe mathematical learning. European research in cognitive development is discussed: operational thought and symbolic imagery, formal reasoning in test situations, the evolution of thought, problem solving and past experience, speech and thought in subnormality, perceptual development in preschoolers, development of higher nervous activity, and the formation of identity of visual characteristics of objects seen successively.
