Infants' Short-Term Progress Toward One Component of Object Performance
Nelson, Keith E.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, 20, 1, 3-8, Jan 74
Infants ranging in age from six months to eight months were shown repeated instances of real object movement-disappearance-reappearance. Results suggest that the key changes in early cognitive development rest primarily upon the infant's gradual adaptation of old responses through encounters with new events--rather than upon the acquisition of essentially new responses through either maturation or learning.
