MORE THEORIES…  Competent Infant Perspective (suggesting that there’s domains of language) - Main Criticism: really underspecified; only a way of organizing the information  Neuroconstructivism: Explains mechanisms of change by considering biological constraints on neural activation patterns that impact biological - (Ex: attachment styles with serotonin in utero; neurological marker for schizophrenia)  Connectionism: Computational modeling of learning via “neural networks”. Provide “input” to units of a network and each unit yields output – a numerical function. - Limitation: what we as researchers put into the computer system might be very different from what children grasp The Job Theories Face  Old and new models  Account for interaction between environment and biological constraints  Recognize MANY learning mechanisms  Cognitive neuroscience important but needs to connect to behavior/development Bringing it all together: 1. Are some capabilities innate?  YES!  But more often than not, nature and nurture are extremely intertwined  Ex: Language (universal to specific), analog numbering representation (children have an approximate number sense that seems to potentially increase mathematical abilities) 2. Does development progress through stages?  More often than not, it’s continuous 3. How does change occur?  Lots of ways! o Biological changes o Habituation and conditioning (children to prefer to look at something slightly different) o Social learning (Vgotsky) o Information-processing mechanisms (as something becomes more automatic, it becomes easier for us to do something else as well) o Domain-specific learning mechanisms (the whole object concept) 4. How do changed in brain contribute to cognitive development?  Development of prefrontal cortex  more sophisticated thinking, planning, and metacognition  Brain plasticity 5. How does the social world contribute to cognitive development?  Social interaction and culture impact how children think 6. How do individuals differ?  Figure out general developmental trends before being able to understand individual differences!  Development is an ACTIVE exploratory process (idea of executive functioning skills and that they can be learned); self-regulation and executive function skills are linked to many other things beyond intelligence Why do we care about cognitive development? - Effects all of us - Enriches our understanding of adult cognition - Helps educators design programs - Informs treatment of developmental disorders - Helps parents understand their children More General Take Away:  Appreciation of research design and methodology (e.g., implicit/explicit measures)  Healthy dose of skepticism  Concrete ideas about things caregivers can do to encourage healthy development  Appreciation of children Exam 3 - Intelligence - Academic Skills - Theories - Wrap up – Big questions in Cognitive Development **1 question
