Modularity and Development: The Case of Spatial Reorientation.
Hermer, Linda; Spelke, Elizabeth
Cognition, v61 n3 p195-232 Dec 1996
Investigated the development of reorientation abilities in humans in contrast to other mammals. Findings support the domain specificity of human's core cognitive abilities, the conservation of cognitive abilities across related species and over the course of human development, and the developmental processes by which core abilities are extended to permit more flexible, uniquely human kinds of problem solving.
