Enumeration of Collective Entities by 5-Month-Old Infants.
Wynn, Karen; Bloom, Paul; Chiang, Wen-Chi
Cognition, v83 n3 pB55-B62 Apr 2002
Examined the nature of numerical knowledge in 5-month-olds to inform the debate whether numerical abilities result from capacities dedicated to numerical cognition or to more general perceptual capacities. Found that 5-month-olds could determine the number of collective entities, moving groups of items, when non-numerical perceptual factors such as contour length, area, and density are strictly controlled.
