Early social cognition in three cultural contexts by Tara C Callaghan( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in Undetermined and English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The influence of culture on cognitive development is well established for school age and older children. But almost nothing is known about how different parenting and socialization practices in different cultures affect infants' and young children's earliest emerging cognitive and social-cognitive skills. In the current monograph, we report a series of eight studies in which we systematically assessed the social-cognitive skills of 1- to 3-year-old children in three diverse cultural settings
Theory of Mind: Four-year-revolution revisited by Nese Oktay-Gür( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The standard picture of Theory of Mind development is this: Children begin to explicitly ascribe beliefs and other propositional attitudes to themselves and others around age four. Therefore, this has been considered as the age at which a fully-fledged Theory of Mind (ToM) is acquired. This picture is caused by numerous studies consistently showing that children master verbal false belief (FB) tasks reliably from age four on, while younger children fail to do so. The standard picture, though, has been attacked by two sorts of critique. On the one hand, studies using implicit measures show e

Cognition in narrow-striped mongooses, Mungotictis decemlineata, a Malagasy carnivore species by Bako Nandrianina Rasolofoniaina( )

2 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carnivores include a wide variety of species that differ in social organization and brain-size, but these two characteristics do not seem to be linked to each other. Additionally, previous studies found no evidence of relationship between social organisation and cognitive abilities in carnivores since solitary and social species exhibited similar cognitive performances. Therefore, the social intelligence hypothesis, which assumes that the demand for sociality influenced the increase in brain-size, was rejected to not explain the evolution of intelligence fully in carnivores. Besides, carniv
Learning from reliable and unreliable speakers Early development and underlying mechanisms by Benjamin Schmid( )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a way to bypass the need for the many iterations of individual experiences required for trial and error learning, humans and several non-human animal species have evolved a capacity to rely on information provided by others. Non-human animals typically learn from conspecifics through stimulus enhancement or emulation learning, using the same tools a conspecific used to obtain the same goal or trying to replicate the outcome of certain behavior. Human children on the other hand do not just focus on the outcome when learning from others. They pay a lot of attention to the teacher and the t
Kommunikation in Echtzeit - die Einflüsse von kindgerichteter Sprache und kindlicher Aufmerksamkeit auf den Spracherwerb = Communication in real time - the influences of infant directed speech and infants' attention on language acquisition by Vivien Outters( )

2 editions published in 2021 in German and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Um Wörter aus dem Sprachfluss zu segmentieren, zu verstehen und schließlich zu produzieren bedarf es einer Reihe an Lernprozessen. Diese Prozesse werden durch unterschiedliche extrinsische Faktoren und intrinsische Biases gefördert. Diese Dissertation präsentiert drei Studien, die sich auf den extrinsischen Faktor konzentrieren, wie wir als Umwelt Kinder ansprechen, wenn wir sprechen (kindgerechte Sprache), und auf die intrinsische Lernmotivation der Kinder. In der ersten Studie wurde untersucht wie der Input der Mutter, die kindliche Präferenz und das kindliche Engagement in sozialen Situa
Dynamics and fitness benefits of male-male sociality in wild Guinea baboons (Papio papio) by Federica Dal Pesco( )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Males living in multi-male groups display a wide range of relationships with co-resident males, varying from high levels of competition, intolerance and avoidance to cooperation, affiliation and social bonds. Despite the wide diversity of male-male relationship dynamics, the existence of multi-male associations and male-male bonds is puzzling, as males compete over un-sharable fertilization. Multi-male associations can emerge as a result of increased between-group competition, which would necessitate communal defense of females. In groups characterized by stable male co-residence, social bo
Phonological and Semantic Overlap Between Words: Effects on Recognition of Familiar and Recently Acquired Words in Early Childhood by Daniela Susana Avila Varela( Book )

2 editions published in 2022 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Classical research on word recognition describes how when adult participants are presented with pairs of words that share phonemes or belong to the same semantic category, the processing of the second word is facilitated provided the first word is related to the second. These observations have suggested that words in the mental lexicon are connected via phonological and semantic links. However, more recently, these association rules have been found to evolve in children during the early phases of language acquisition, at the time in which their language processing skills are being developed
Environmental and maternal effects on infant development in wild Verreaux´s sifakas (Propithecus verreauxi) by Hasiniavo Santatriniaina Malalaharivony( Book )

2 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Lebenszyklus von Organismen variiert enorm zwischen und innerhalb von Arten, was zu Unterschieden in der Lebensgeschichte führt. Die frühe Entwicklung spielt für Individuen eine wichtige Rolle und prägt deren gesamtes Leben. Beschleunigte oder verzögerte Entwicklungsphasen beeinflussen dabei nicht nur das Erreichen der körperlichen und physiologischen Reife, sondern auch die Fitness eines Organismus. Die Faktoren, die die frühe Entwicklung eines Individuums beeinflussen können, sind weitestgehend dokumentiert. Im Gegensatz dazu ist wenig bekannt über die Meilensteine und dahinterliegend
Children's selective trust decisions: rational competence and limiting performance factors( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Recent research has amply documented that even preschoolers learn selectively from others, preferring, for example, reliable over unreliable and competent over incompetent models. It remains unclear, however, what the cognitive foundations of such selective learning are, in particular, whether it builds on rational inferences or on less sophisticated processes. The current study, therefore, was designed to test directly the possibility that children are in principle capable of selective learning based on rational inference, yet revert to simpler strategies such as global impression formation under certain circumstances. Preschoolers (N = 75) were shown pairs of models that either differed in their degree of competence within one domain (strong vs. weak or knowledgeable vs. ignorant) or were both highly competent, but in different domains (e.g., strong vs. knowledgeable model). In the test trials, children chose between the models for strength- or knowledge-related tasks. The results suggest that, in fact, children are capable of rational inference-based selective trust: when both models were highly competent, children preferred the model with the competence most predictive and relevant for a given task. However, when choosing between two models that differed in competence on one dimension, children reverted to halo-style wide generalizations and preferred the competent models for both relevant and irrelevant tasks. These findings suggest that the rational strategies for selective learning, that children master in principle, can get masked by various performance factors. Abstract : Preschoolers are capable of rational inference on the basis of trait reasoning in their selective trust. Yet, they fall back on simpler cognitive strategies (e.g., global impression formation) due to limiting performance factors, such as a lack of relevant trait knowledge, insufficient executive function, or task structures that facilitate simpler strategies
