Description

Discrimination learning and infant cognition The Nature and Processes of Preverbal Learning details a study on discrimination learning in nine-month-old infants to explore how children can learn before they can speak. Using visual stimuli with measured variation in a multi-phase exposure to almost 100 infants, researchers investigated the effects of reinforcement versus stimulus and the continuity of learning curves. This book details their methods, results, and analysis, with a supplementary commentary that explores the link between cognitive processes and learning throughout the life span.
