Gravity Rules for 2- to 4-Year-Olds?
Hood, Bruce M.
Cognitive Development, v10 n4 p577-98 Oct-Dec 1995
Tested children with apparatus that dropped balls through clear or opaque interwoven tubes. Found that older children could solve configurations with greater number of tubes than younger children. Success with clear tubes did not transfer to opaque tubes. Significantly, errors were consistently directed to location directly below ball's last seen position, suggesting ability to search in gravity/aligned direction. (TM)
