PSYC 244 - Cognitive Development

This seminar explores the perceptual and cognitive abilities of babies and young children. How does their knowledge of physical objects, space, the biological world, number, and people’s minds and behaviors evolve? How does their ability to imitate and communicate develop?

Different theoretical approaches will be considered, especially with respect to the role of experience, innate factors, and cultural factors in development.
