- How we think objects move in the world
1. OBJECT PERMANENCE
- Ability to reason about the location and movements of objects that are not directly visible
- Impossible vs possible events (last week) (ie. 1+1=3?)
PIAGETS STAGES OF OBJECT PE‘MANENCE (By Age)
- 1/2 yo: Dot searh for ojets that hae goe out of sight
- 3 yo: Reach for partially hidden object
- 4 yo: Search for fully hidden object
- 5/6 yo: Track possible movements of hidden objects (Invisible Displacement)
o Stage 5:
White dot = initial location of object
Black dot = current object location
o Stage 6:
Put dot in little container, but littler container under big box
Great apes- YES- But do they have a representation of an invisible object, or does their
representation change to the visible object?
Corvids- mixed results
Dolphins- No?
