Vollman, Elayne; Richland, Lindsey – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
We examine the contributions of the environmental context on cognitive development in a representative sample of children (24-59 month-olds) in Nicaragua. Multivariate regression models revealed that children who experienced high levels of structure in the home, encountered more social interaction, and were enrolled in early education programs,…

Ribeiro, Luisa A.; Casey, Beth; Dearing, Eric; Nordahl, Kristin Berg; Aguiar, Cecília; Zachrisson, Henrik – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
The aim of this study is to investigate whether maternal spatial support during two types of joint manipulative toy play tasks with 2-year-old children was longitudinally associated with math screening test scores in second grade. The interaction between spatial support and maternal education was explored as well. We also investigated predictions…

Panesi, Sabrina; Morra, Sergio – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
The structure of executive functions in preschoolers is controversial. Miyake and colleagues found that, in adults, inhibition, shifting, and updating are correlated but distinguishable processes; this finding was sometimes replicated with schoolchildren. Based on schoolchildren data, Im-Bolter, Johnson, and Pascual-Leone proposed a four-component…

Pecora, Giulia; Bellagamba, Francesca; Chiarotti, Flavia; Paoletti, Melania; Castano, Maria Letizia; Addessi, Elsa – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
We aimed to longitudinally examine how symbolic distancing affects preschool children's delay tolerance in a delay choice task. We presented children with choices between a smaller immediate reward and a larger delayed reward in conditions with either symbolic stimuli or edible rewards. Overall, symbolic distancing modulated children's delay…

Verhagen, Josje; de Bree, Elise; Unsworth, Sharon – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
Although a bilingual advantage has been reported for various measures of cognitive control, most previous studies have looked at a limited range of cognitive control measures. Furthermore, they typically leave unaddressed whether positive effects of bilingualism hold for all bilinguals or whether these are modulated by differences in bilingual…

Leyva, Diana; Reese, Elaine; Laible, Deborah; Schaughency, Elizabeth; Das, Shika; Clifford, Amanda – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
Parents' elaboration plays an important role in autobiographical memory and socioemotional development. Two types of coding approaches have been used to assess parents' elaboration: a frequency-based coding (absolute frequencies of different types of elaborative utterances) and a scale-based coding (a 5-point scale based on relative frequencies of…

de Gracia, Ma. Regina Laya; de Rosnay, Marc; Hawes, David; Perez, Maria Veronica Templo – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
The acquisition of theory of mind (ToM) -- the ability to attribute mental states to explain others' behaviors -- is a critical milestone in children's cognitive development. Previous research has established that deaf children experience significant delays in ToM compared to hearing children within the same culture. However, prior studies were…

Cossette, Isabelle; Fobert, Sophie F.; Slinger, Michael; Brosseau-Liard, Patricia E. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
Children have repeatedly been shown to selectively prefer to learn from previously accurate informants rather than those who have been inaccurate in the past. However, the stability of individual differences in performance on such tasks has yet to be studied. We presented preschoolers with two identical selective learning tasks conducted one week…

Cavioni, Valeria; Grazzani, Ilaria; Ornaghi, Veronica; Pepe, Alessandro; Pons, Francisco – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
The Test of Emotion Comprehension (TEC) has been used extensively to investigate children's understanding of emotion. The present study aimed at investigating the TEC's factorial structure, its measurement invariance across age and gender, and defining age-referred TEC scores, in a large sample of 1,478 children (755 males, 723 females) aged…

Kulke, Louisa; Rakoczy, Hannes – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
Theory of Mind (ToM), the ability to attribute mental states to agents, has usually been measured with explicit verbal tasks and found to develop slowly during the preschool years. New implicit ToM measures have lately revolutionized the field by suggesting that ToM may be present much earlier in development. However, recent replication studies of…

Diuk, Beatriz; Barreyro, Juan Pablo; Ferroni, Marina; Mena, Milagros; Serrano, Francisca – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
Reading difficulties of children growing up in poverty contexts have not received as much attention as those of children from middle-income families. This paper analyzes the reading-related cognitive profiles of Argentine, Spanish-speaking, low-SES children with reading difficulties (RD), by comparing them with chronological age- (CA) and reading…

Ellefson, Michelle R.; Baker, Sara T.; Gibson, Jenny L. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
This article gives a reflective account of lessons learned from the experiences of three cognitive developmental scientists conducting psychological research in educational settings. First, we describe and analyze four key cultural distinctions between traditional approaches to research in psychology and education: 1) different structures, 2)…

Frankenberg, Sofia J.; Taguchi, Hillevi Lenz; Gerholm, Tove; Bodén, Linnea; Kallioinen, Petter; Kjällander, Susanne; Palmer, Anna; Tonér, Signe – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
Within the field of developmental science, there is a general agreement of the need to work together across academic disciplinary boundaries in order to advance the understandings of how to optimize child development and learning. However, experience also shows that such collaborations may be challenging. This paper reports on the experiences of…

Seger, Benedikt T.; Wannagat, Wienke; Nieding, Gerhild – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
In our current culture, children are exposed to a huge amount of audiovisual media, of which many formats include animated pictures, such as in videos, for instance. The current study addresses the use of audiovisual media in order to increase the effectiveness of learning and teaching. We examined how auditory text, audiovisual text with static…

Martzog, Philipp; Stoeger, Heidrun; Suggate, Sebastian – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
An increasing number of findings suggest that cognition is grounded in sensorimotor experiences. Research suggests that fine motor skills (FMS) link to cognitive abilities. Existing studies, however, lack conceptual and methodological differentiation regarding FMS and little is known about the directional nature of links. In study 1, we measured…
