Martzog, Philipp; Stoeger, Heidrun; Suggate, Sebastian – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
An increasing number of findings suggest that cognition is grounded in sensorimotor experiences. Research suggests that fine motor skills (FMS) link to cognitive abilities. Existing studies, however, lack conceptual and methodological differentiation regarding FMS and little is known about the directional nature of links. In study 1, we measured…

O'Neil, Lauren Vega; Pakulak, Eric; Stevens, Courtney; Bell, Theodore A.; Fanning, Jessica L.; Gaston, Marci; Gomsrud, Melissa; Hampton Wray, Amanda; Holmes, Kerry B.; Klein, Scott; Longoria, Zayra; Reynolds, Mary Margaret; Snell, Karla; Soto, Annie; Neville, Helen – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
Translational research involving the development, implementation, and assessment of evidence-based interventions has shown promise in improving outcomes for children from lower socioeconomic-status backgrounds. One such approach involves 2-generation interventions, which target both children and their parents/caregivers. Here we traced the…

Frankenberg, Sofia J.; Taguchi, Hillevi Lenz; Gerholm, Tove; Bodén, Linnea; Kallioinen, Petter; Kjällander, Susanne; Palmer, Anna; Tonér, Signe – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
Within the field of developmental science, there is a general agreement of the need to work together across academic disciplinary boundaries in order to advance the understandings of how to optimize child development and learning. However, experience also shows that such collaborations may be challenging. This paper reports on the experiences of…

Dickinson, David K.; Collins, Molly F.; Nesbitt, Kimberly; Toub, Tamara Spiewak; Hassinger-Das, Brenna; Hadley, Elizabeth Burke; Hirsh-Pasek, Kathy; Golinkoff, Roberta Michnick – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2019
There is a need for empirically based educational practices shown to support learning, yet validation tends to require a high degree of experimental control that can limit ecological validity and translation to classrooms. We describe our iterative intervention design to support preschoolers' vocabulary through book reading coupled with playful…

Valentino, Kristin; McDonnell, Christina G.; Comas, Michelle; Nuttall, Amy K. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2018
Reduced autobiographical memory specificity (AMS) has robust associations with psychopathology. As such, understanding the development of AMS (or its inverse, overgeneral autobiographical memory) and how it may be unique from other aspects of memory performance is important. In particular, it is unclear whether child AMS is distinct from…

Vasilyeva, Marina; Laski, Elida; Veraksa, Aleksandr; Weber, Lindsey; Bukhalenkova, Daria – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2018
It is imperative to identify contextual factors contributing to the development of early math skills, considering their role in later academic achievement. To pursue this goal, the present study investigated the paths connecting parental beliefs and practices during the preschool years to children's numeric skills at the end of kindergarten…

Ziv, Margalit; Solomon, Ayelet; Strauss, Sidney; Frye, Douglas – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2016
The relations among children's theory of mind (ToM), their understanding of the intentionality of teaching, and their own peer teaching strategies were tested. Seventy-five 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds completed 11 ToM and understanding-of-teaching tasks. Subsequently, 30 of the children were randomly chosen to teach a peer how to play a board game,…

Garon, Nancy; Longard, Julie; Craig, Bethany; Kent, Kiera – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2015
The current study investigated the effect of frequency of loss and awareness on the ability to make advantageous decisions in preschoolers using a child variant of the Iowa Gambling Task (Bechara, Damasio, Damasio, & Anderson, 1994). Preschoolers (N = 50) were randomly assigned to either a low loss frequency (0.1) or a high loss frequency…

Dunphy-Lelii, Sarah; Hooley, Merrilyn; McGivern, Lisa; Skouteris, Helen; Cox, Rachael – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2014
Research to date has focused mostly on children's representation of their physical self as a prelude to the development of a theory of mind (ToM) and on their understanding of the self as distinct from others over time. Whether children approaching the well-known age of ToM mastery are also accurately appraising their own "body's"…

Kittler, Phyllis M.; Brooks, Patricia J.; Rossi, Vanessa; Karmel, Bernard Z.; Gardner, Judith M.; Flory, Michael J. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2013
Neonatal intensive-care unit (NICU) graduates, a group at risk for attention problems and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, performed an intradimensional shift card sort at 34, 42, 51, and 60 months to assess executive function and to examine effects of individual risk factors. In the "silly" game, children sorted cards…

Martarelli, Corinna S.; Mast, Fred W. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2013
Children aged 3 to 8 years old and adults were tested on a reality–fantasy distinction task. They had to judge whether particular entities were real or fantastical, and response times were collected. We further manipulated whether the entity is a specific character or a generic fantastical entity. The results indicate that children, unlike adults,…

Pathman, Thanujeni; Larkina, Marina; Burch, Melissa M.; Bauer, Patricia J. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2013
Remembering the temporal information associated with personal past events is critical for autobiographical memory, yet we know relatively little about the development of this capacity. In the present research, we investigated temporal memory for naturally occurring personal events in 4-, 6-, and 8-year-old children. Parents recorded unique events…

Shutts, Kristin; Pemberton Roben, Caroline K.; Spelke, Elizabeth S. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2013
A series of studies investigated White U.S. 3- and 4-year-old children's use of gender and race information to reason about their own and others’ relationships and attributes. Three-year-old children used gender- but not race-based similarity between themselves and others to decide with whom they wanted to be friends, as well as to determine which…

Kinnunen, Suna; Korkman, Marit; Laasonen, Marja; Lahti-Nuuttila, Pekka – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2013
This study focuses on the development of face recognition in typically developing preschool- and school-aged children (aged 5 to 15 years old, "n" = 611, 336 girls). Social predictors include sex differences and own-sex bias. At younger ages, the development of face recognition was rapid and became more gradual as the age increased up…

Rittle-Johnson, Bethany; Fyfe, Emily R.; McLean, Laura E.; McEldoon, Katherine L. – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2013
Young children have an impressive amount of mathematics knowledge, but past psychological research has focused primarily on their number knowledge. Preschoolers also spontaneously engage in a form of early algebraic thinking-patterning. In the current study, we assessed 4-year-old children's knowledge of repeating patterns on two occasions…
