The Origins of Concept Formation: Object Sorting and Object Preference in Early Infancy.
Starkey, David
Child Development, v52 n2 p489-97 Jun 1981
Examines the issue of object sorting in early infancy. Forty-eight infants at 6, 9, and 12 months were presented with eight sets of small, manipulable objects. At six months, selective manipulation was absent; at nine months, 94 percent of the infants sequentially touched similar objects and at 12 months 100 percent did so. (Author/DB)
