Predicting the Outcomes of Physical Events: Two-Year-Olds Fail To Reveal Knowledge of Solidity and Support.
Hood, Bruce; Carey, Susan; Prasada, Sandeep
Child Development, v71 n6 p1540-54 Nov-Dec 2000
Examined in 4 experiments 2-year-olds' knowledge of solidity in search tasks. Found no evidence that 2-year-olds represented solidity and support constraints on trajectories of falling objects; two experiments included 2.5-year-olds who succeeded on search tasks. Explored implications of 2-year-olds' poor performance in light of very young infants' success on looking- time measures of sensitivity to similar constraints on object motion. (Author/KB)
