Seeing It Happen and Knowing How It Works: How Children Understand the Relation between Perceptual Causality and Underlying Mechanism.
Schlottmann, Anne
Developmental Psychology, v35 n1 p303-17 Jan 1999
Two studies investigated how 5- to 10-year-olds integrate perceptual causality with their knowledge of the underlying causal mechanism, using two devices in which a bell would ring when a ball was dropped in, either immediately or after a delay, depending on the mechanism inside. Findings suggest a link between temporal contiguity and causality in children's understanding. (JPB)
