HOW INFANTS AND TODDLERS THINK.
They go through these processes…
Perception: Neural activity of combining sensations into meaningful patterns
Cognition: All processes by which humans acquire knowledge; methods for thinking or gaming knowledge about the world
Arousal and infant heart rates: Changes in heart rate are taken to signify variations in the baby’s arousal, alertness, and general contentment
Recognition, memory, and infant habituation: Infants indicate recognition of objects, people, and activities, AND familiar people elicit a special response in one-year-olds
Habituation: The tendency to attend to novel stimuli and ignore familiar ones: LIKE A BEE FLYING INTO YOUR CAR – YOU WILL NOTICE THAT! Otherwise, we just drive along our normal route and, yes, we pay attention to traffic, but if you know your car and your route, you are habituated to them.
Infants have memory before they have language. How do we know this?
Visual perception in infancy
Object perception: Object constancy; size constancy
