The Role of Actions in Making Inferences about the Shape and Material of Solid Objects among Japanese 2-Year-Old Children.
Kobayashi, Harumi
Cognition, v63 n3 p251-69 Jun 1997
In two experiments, an adult presented 2-year-olds with an unfamiliar solid object, either rigid or flexible, and performed an action that emphasized the object's shape or material. Children were then asked to choose an object that matched the one shown. As hypothesized, the adult's action information alone directed children to attend to relevant object properties in making inferences. (EV)
