Reasoning about Containment Events in Very Young Infants.
Hespos, Susan J.; Baillargeon, Renee
Cognition, v78 n3 p207-45 Mar 2001
Four experiments examined very young infants' expectations about containment events. Found that 2- to 3.5-month-olds recognized that objects could be lowered inside a container with an open but not a closed top. Three-and-a-half-month-olds realized that objects could not pass through the container's back wall and should have moved with it to a new location when it was moved. (Author/KB)
