Are some capabilities innate? - Associationist (e.g., Locke): Mind is a “blank slate” - Constuctivist (e.g., Piaget): Infants born with some capacities for learning and survival - Competent-infant (e.g., Spelke): Infants are born with a wide range of understandings Associative/Statistical Learning Research Design:  IV and DV  Longitudinal (testing the same group over time) and Cross-Sectional (taking the data all at once for different age groups)  super popular for cog dev.  Microgenetic (condensed longitudinal study); good for looking at academic skills  Habituation/Preferential Looking/violation of Expectation Pros Cons Descriptive - Good first glance - No manipulation - Detail - Generalizing hard Correlational - Comparing things - Correlation does that can’t be not equal causation manipulated directly Experimental - Direct manipulation Toddlers and Television: Some take-home thoughts - Infants learn little from TV before about 18 months - “the video deficit” infants and toddlers learn more from people than tv - TV viewing has poetical implications that go beyond cognitive outcomes The Object Concept  Piaget claimed understanding of objects emerges at 18 mos (e.g., A not B task)  Violation of expectations paradigm supports developing understanding of physical world between 3.5 and 12 mos  Manipulations of reaching tasks between 8 and 12 mos (tends to be later on than looking tasks)  Criticisms of violation of expectations? o Passive task o Familiarity preference o Lingering visual memory trace (hasn’t actually become higher order thinking) The Rouge Task  Mirror self-recognition/Mark test/Nose test o 6 – 18 m.o.  don’t notice o 18 – 20 m.o.  some notice o 21 – 24 m.o.  most notice  Results similar across cultures  Some animals can do this too ASSIGNMENT 1: - Infants look longer when actor searches in box that is inconsistent with belief (i.e., rudimentary false belief) - Interpretations: o Intentional stance (infants view others as having mental states that cause them to act) o Teleological Stance (mind blind); they don’t actually understand how mental states relate to behavior Formation of Concepts:  Defining features theory: necessary and sufficient  Prototype theory: properties correlated, family resemblances, hierarchical  Theory-based representations  There are distributed representations at a neurological level Children’s Understanding of Death: Take home thoughts - Children are curious, learning about death from many sources - Knowledge of biology leads to a better understanding of death and may reduce fear - Attend to individual child - Should not ignore religion/spirituality - Can have dual representations Language:  Statistical learning processes are important for language acquisition (aka associative learning)  Terms such as “fast-mapping”, pragmatics, etc.  Assignment 2  Social interaction really important too 1. Provide a language rich environment: extend discourse vs. prohibitions 2. Talk and play with children 3. Follow children’s interests 4. Language in context 5. “Strive for five” 6. Music (?) Social Cognition - Ability to understand the mental states… - 18 m.o….. - Passing false belief does not equal theory of mind Infantile Amnesia 1. Freud: Repressed memories 2. Sense of self 3. Neurological structures 4. Infants may focus on events differently, making retrieval difficult » May focus on learning routines… 5. Differences in encoding and retrieval » Females tend to have earlier memories than males AND females tend to have more advanced language develop than males » Magic shrinking machine (kids that were verbal at the time of encoding, they would do ok being tested nonverbally and verbally)…
