Early Differentiation within the Animate Domain: Are Humans Something Special?
Pauen, Sabina
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v75 n2 p134-51 Feb 2000
Two experiments investigated whether preverbal infants distinguish between humans and mammals. Study 1 found that 7-, 9-, and 11-month-olds distinguished humans from mammals in an object-examination task. Study 2 found that 7-month-olds but not 5-month-olds showed evidence for category discrimination with the 2-dimensional color photos of toy models used in Study 1. (Author/KB)
