Imagery Induction in the Pre-Imagery Child. Technical Report No. 282.
Levin, Joel R.; And Others
This study extends some recently acquired knowledge about the development of visual imagery as an associative-learning strategy. Incorporating the present findings into the data already gathered, it appears that as a facilitator, sentence production precedes imagery generation since preoperational children benefit from instructions to engage in the former though not in the latter. Moreover, the provision of relevant motor activity, which has been shown to induce imagery generation in 6-year-olds, has at best a variable effect on the performance of 3- and 4-year-olds.
