Infant Perception and Cognition

Recent Advances, Emerging Theories, and Future Directions

Edited by Lisa Oakes, Edited by Cara Cashon, Edited by Marianella Casasola, and Edited by David Rakison

  • First book focused on mechanisms of change, over developmental time, in the information-processing mind
  • Demonstrate how the combination of historical perspectives on the information-processing approach to cognition and recent advances in behavioral, computational, and neuroscience approaches to cognition has contributed to our understanding of how abilities ranging from visual attention to face processing to object categorization have developed during infancy
  • Illustrates how much of our modern understanding of infant perceptual and cognitive development has emerged from the foundation of classic information-processing models of development, as well as how researchers have built on this foundation to uncover the mechanisms that drive developmental change
