Development of Means-End Behavior in Young Infants: Pulling a Support To Retrieve a Distant Object.
Willatts, Peter
Developmental Psychology, v35 n3 p651-67 May 1999
Three longitudinal studies examined means-ends behavior of 6- to 8-month olds. Found that intentional means-end behavior increased between 6 and 7 months, with 7-month olds' performance influenced by the presence of a toy on the cloth. Performance was the same when cloth was attached to or separate from the toy. By 8 months, infants adjusted means-end behavior to distance of toy. (Author/KB)
