Testing-the-Limits and Experimental Simulation: Two Methods to Explicate the Role of Learning in Development.
Lindenberger, Ulman; Bates, Paul B.
Human Development, v38 n6 p349-60 Nov-Dec 1995
Calls for a coalition of different research methods and strategies to better understand learning and development. Describes two such strategies: (1) testing-the-limits decomposing age-graded differences in upper limits of plasticity; and (2) experimental simulation of development, a coordinated sequence of theory-guided research steps. Both approaches are discussed and illustrated with examples from life span (cognitive and social) psychology. (ET)
