Learning in the Development of Infant Locomotion.

Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development, v62 n3 p1-140 1997
Examined how infants acquire adaptive locomotion in the novel task of going up and down slopes. Found that infants' judgments became increasingly accurate and exploration became increasingly efficient, with no transfer over the transition from crawling to walking. Infants learned to gauge their abilities on-line as they encountered each hill at the start of the trial. (Author)
