A Developmental Study of Logical Search Behavior
Drozdal, John G., Jr.; Flavell, John H.
Child Development, 46, 2, 389-393, Jun 75
This study investigated the development of the concept of a critical search area by means of an action sequence in which a cartoon character loses his toy while walking through his house. The results showed that it is not until ages 7 or 8 that children readily make the inference that the critical area is the only plausible place to search for the lost toy. (Author/CS)
