Stripes Do Not a Zebra Make, or Do They? Conceptual and Perceptual Information in Inductive Inference.
Florian, Judy E.
Developmental Psychology, v30 n1 p88-101 Jan 1994
Four-year-olds' and adults' inferences based on shared conceptual properties, category labels, and perceptual information were assessed in four experiments. Stimuli included novel and familiar animals. Found that children made attribute-based inductions as well as category-based inductions, and that perceptual similarity consistently influenced children's inductions. (MDM)
