A dynamic systems approach to the development of cognition and action by Esther Thelen( )

43 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 2,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a comprehensive and detailed theory of early human development based on the principles of dynamic systems theory. It raises fundamental questions about prevailing assumptions in the field and proposes a new theory of the development of cognition and action, unifying recent advances in dynamic systems theory with current research in neuroscience and neural development. Following the introduction, chapter 1 explores the ontogeny of erect locomotion. Chapter 2 offers an overview of current theorizing about cognitive development. Chapter 3 introduces the concepts of nonlinear dynamic systems in general terms and chapter 4 uses the example of learning to walk to elaborate a dynamic approach to development. The next three chapters bring dynamic principles into issues of process and mechanism. Chapter 5 begins with a discussion of the dynamic nature of the brain, followed by an extended explication of Edelman's theory of neuronal group selection. Chapter 6 discusses the philosophical nature of categories, showing the fundamental dynamic properties of categories of thought and action and their development. Chapter 7 reviews evidence from human infant studies for the process of development as dynamic selection. Chapter 8 addresses the question of context specificity, and chapter 9 covers variability and selection. Chapter 10 examines the emergence of novelty, specifically the phase shift in the so-called A-not-B theory of late infancy. The final chapter offers concluding remarks and addresses issues and implications of the proposed developmental theory. Contains over 500 references. (Tjq)

The spatial foundation of cognition and language by Kelly S Mix( )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents recent research on the role of space as a mechanism in language use and learning. It proceeds from the notion that cognition in real time, developmental time, and over evolutionary time occurs in space, and that the physical properties of space may provide insights into basic cognitive processes, including memory, attention, action, and perception. It looks at how physical space and landmarks are used in cognitive representations and serve as the basis of human cognition in a range of core mechanisms to index memories and ground meanings that are not themselves explicitly about space. The editors have brought together experimental psychologists, computer scientists, robotocists, linguists, and researchers in child language in order to consider the nature and applications of this research and in particular its implications for understanding the processes involved in language acquisition
