Evidence for Knowledge-Based Category Discrimination in Infancy.
Pauen, Sabina
Child Development, v73 n4 p1016-33 Jul-Aug 2002
Two studies examined whether infants' category discrimination in an object-examination task was based solely on an ad hoc analysis of perceptual similarities among the experimental stimuli. Findings indicated that 10- to 11-month- olds' responses varied systematically only with the presence of a category change, but not with the degree of between-category similarity, supporting the hypothesis that performance was knowledge based.
