Generalizing the Dynamic Field Theory of the A-not-B Error beyond Infancy: Three-Year-Olds' Delay- and Experience-Dependent Location Memory Biases.
Schutte, Anne R.; Spencer, John P.
Child Development, v73 n2 p377-404 Mar-Apr 2002
Tested predictions of dynamic field theory in study of 3-year-olds' location memory errors in task with homogeneous task space. Found that young children's spatial memory responses are affected by delay- and experience-dependent processes as well as the geometric structure of the task space. Both dynamic field theory and category adjustment models provide incomplete accounts of children's location memory abilities. (Author/KB)
