Transfer in Young Children's Understanding of Spatial Representations.
Marzolf, Donald P.; DeLoache, Judy S.
Child Development, v65 n1 p1-15 Feb 1994
In 3 studies, 2.5- and 3-year-olds transferred knowledge from an easy task that required appreciation of a symbolic relation to a more difficult task involving a symbolic relation that children their age typically do not appreciate. Results support the theory that young children use insight into one symbolic relation to understand other symbolic relations. (MDM)
