Hofmann, Richard J.; Flook, Molly A.
Journal of Genetic Psychology, v136 n2 p305-06 Jun 1980
Results indicated that four-year-old children who viewed a television program did not demonstrate greater haptic ability to recognize and categorize shapes than did children not exposed to the program. Results also suggested that children's TV does not facilitate concrete operational thinking in shape recognition for preschoolers. (Author/DB)
