Chernyak, Nadia; Kang, Carissa; Kushnir, Tamar – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Making sense of human actions involves thinking about both "endogenous" influences (the internal mental states of agents) and "exogenous" influences (social, moral, and interpersonal constraints). Culture impacts how we weight the relative causal influence of these two influences. To examine these cultural influences in depth,…

Neldner, Karri; Redshaw, Jonathan; Murphy, Sean; Tomaselli, Keyan; Davis, Jacqueline; Dixson, Barnaby; Nielsen, Mark – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Prior research suggests that human children lack an aptitude for tool innovation. However, children's tool making must be explored across a broader range of tasks and across diverse cultural contexts before we can conclude that they are genuinely poor tool innovators. To this end, we investigated children's ability to independently construct 3 new…

Vendetti, Corrie; Kamawar, Deepthi; Andrews, Katherine E. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
We told ninety-nine 4- and 5-year-olds stories in which speakers told lies and truths in two contexts: those told to deny a transgression (misdeeds) and those told to spare another's feelings (politeness). Participants identified each statement as a lie or as the truth, morally judged it as good or bad, and decided whether or not to assign…

Smogorzewska, Joanna; Szumski, Grzegorz; Grygiel, Pawel – Developmental Psychology, 2019
The main aims of this study were to further validate the Children's Social Understanding Scale (CSUS), which is a parent-report measure developed by Tahiroglu and colleagues, and to fill in some gaps in the existing research. Our study included more than 700 Polish parents from a diverse educational background who had children with disabilities,…

Grigoroglou, Myrto; Papafragou, Anna – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Adults adjust the informativeness of their utterances to the needs of their addressee. For children, however, relevant evidence is mixed. In this article we explore the communicative circumstances under which children offer informative descriptions. In Experiment 1, 4- and 5-year-old children and adults described a target event from a pair of…

Atkinson, Amy L.; Waterman, Amanda H.; Allen, Richard J. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Recent research found no evidence that children aged 7-10 years are able to direct their attention to more valuable information in working memory. The current experiments examined whether children demonstrate this ability when the reward system used to motivate participants is engaging and age-appropriate. This was explored across different memory…

Gao, Mengyu; Cummings, E. Mark – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Toward advancing the understanding of relations among family relationships when children transition into adolescence, this study investigated whether parent-child relationship (PCR) quality assessed at the daily level changed developmentally and/or fluctuated due to daily experiences. Specifically, this study examined (a) whether parents' daily…

Cantrell, Lisa M.; Kanjlia, Shipra; Harrison, Mirjam; Luck, Steven J.; Oakes, Lisa M. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Infants' ability to perform visual short-term memory (VSTM) tasks develops rapidly between 6 and 8 months. Here we tested the hypothesis that infants' VSTM performance is influenced by their ability to individuate simultaneously presented objects. We used a "one-shot change detection task" to ask whether 6-month-old infants (N = 47)…

Weidinger, Anne F.; Steinmayr, Ricarda; Spinath, Birgit – Developmental Psychology, 2019
In line with the reciprocal internal/external frame of reference model (RI/E model), it is well-established that secondary school students generate domain-specific ability self-concepts by comparing their own performance in a domain socially (i.e., with others' performance in this domain) and dimensionally (i.e., with their own performance in…

Larson, Reed W.; Raffaelli, Marcela; Guzman, Sandy; Salusky, Ida; Orson, Carolyn N.; Kenzer, Andrea – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Developmental theory historically viewed demanding roles (at home, job) as important developmental contexts. However, adolescents' participation in these roles has fallen. This qualitative research examined role experiences in United States youth development programs. A central question among others was, "How can youth experience internal…

Borschel, Elisabeth; Zimmermann, Julia; Crocetti, Elisabetta; Meeus, Wim; Noack, Peter; Neyer, Franz J. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Residential mobility--the change of residence within a country--is a pervasive phenomenon in 21st century societies, with the peak clearly being in young adulthood. Placing the self in geographical space has now become a major challenge for young adults, making region a key identity domain. Little is known, however, about the correlates of…

Ayorech, Ziada; Plomin, Robert; von Stumm, Sophie – Developmental Psychology, 2019
At the end of compulsory schooling, young adults decide on educational and occupational trajectories that impact their subsequent employability, health and even life expectancy. To understand the antecedents to these decisions, we follow a new approach that considers genetic contributions, which have largely been ignored before. Using genomewide…

Bielak, Allison A. M.; Anstey, Kaarin J. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Intraindividual variability (IIV) in cognitive speed, or moment-to-moment changes in ability, is a developmental phenomenon indicative of neurological integrity that increases gradually across adulthood. Past research has shown that IIV negatively covaries with cognitive performance, in which higher IIV at one occasion is associated with poorer…

Tsui, Angeline Sin Mei; Byers-Heinlein, Krista; Fennell, Christopher T. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Associative word learning, the ability to pair a concept to a word, is an essential mechanism for early language development. One common method by which researchers measure this ability is the Switch task (Werker, Cohen, Lloyd, Casasola, & Stager, 1998), wherein infants are habituated to 2 word-object pairings and then tested on their ability…

Yamashiro, Amy; Vouloumanos, Athena – Developmental Psychology, 2019
Adult humans process communicative interactions by recognizing that information is being communicated through speech (linguistic ability) and simultaneously evaluating how to respond appropriately (social-pragmatic ability). These abilities may originate in infancy. Infants understand how speech communicates in social interactions, helping them…
