  • Are Different Actions Mediated by Distinct Systems of Knowledge in
           Infancy'
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 7 June 2018Source: Advances in Child Development and BehaviorAuthor(s): Peter M. Vishton This chapter considers why studies of infant looking and reaching often suggest different patterns of cognitive and perceptual development. In some cases, convergent results have emerged from studies of infant looking and reaching, but differences are common. The most typical results suggest less adult-like perception and cognition in studies of reaching than in studies of looking. Several reaching studies, however, do not fit this pattern, suggesting that reaching actions may be mediated by distinct systems of knowledge and information processing. Comparisons of research on other behaviors, such as crawling and walking, also suggest that infant knowledge systems vary across actions. Research on how adult size perception differs between verbal and reaching response behaviors is considered and used as a template to interpret the developmental results. Like adults, when infants prepare to engage in particular actions, they seem to shift their sensitivity to particular sources of information and to process that information in action-relevant ways. These tendencies suggest that distinct knowledge systems mediate different actions in infancy.
       
  • A Perception–Action Approach to Understanding Typical and Atypical
           Motor Development
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 6 June 2018Source: Advances in Child Development and BehaviorAuthor(s): Jill Whitall, Jane E. Clark In this chapter, we ask two questions. First, can the study of the perception–action system across time offer a useful model for understanding motor development' Second, can the study of the perception–action system in children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) inform our understanding of atypical as well as typical motor development' We begin by describing the dynamical systems perspective and a control-theoretic approach that together provide the conceptual framework for our paradigms, methodology, and interpretation of our experiments. Our experimental strategy has been to perturb one or more sensory systems and observe the effect on the motor system. The majority of the chapter explains how we employed two principal perturbation strategies: (1) removing or adding a static source of sensory information believed to be salient to the task at hand and (2) enhancing a dynamic source of sensory information either implicitly or explicitly. These strategies were employed in three different action systems: posture; rhythmic interlimb coordination, and goal-directed reaching and drawing. After synthesizing our findings, we conclude by addressing the original questions and offering future directions. In brief, we consider that perception–action coupling is an underlying mechanism/foundation/constraint of motor development in the sense that the ongoing processing of sensations and the planning and execution of movements are how the brain produces goal-directed movements. Therefore, a better understanding of how this coupling changes or adapts over time has much to offer as to how motor behavior develops across the lifespan, both typically and atypically.
       
  • Timing Is Almost Everything: How Children Perceive and Act on Dynamic
           Affordances
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 6 June 2018Source: Advances in Child Development and BehaviorAuthor(s): Jodie M. Plumert, Joseph K. Kearney A key challenge for the developing perception–action system is learning how to move the self in relation to other moving objects. This often involves perceiving and acting on affordances or possibilities for action that depend on the relation between the characteristics of the individual and the properties of the environment (Gibson, 1979). This chapter overviews our program of research on perceiving and acting on dynamic affordances (i.e., possibilities for action that vary over time). Our goal is to bridge the divide between basic and applied research by using road crossing as a model system for studying how children's ability to perceive and act on dynamic affordances undergoes change with age and experience. The basic task is for participants to cross virtual roads with continuous traffic either on foot or on a bicycle. This work reveals that children's gap choices and crossing motions are less tightly linked than those of adults. Children often choose the same size gaps as adults but time their entry into those gaps less tightly than adults. As a result, children typically end up with less time to spare than adults when they clear the path of the vehicles. Improvement in gap selection and movement timing occurs gradually over development, indicating the perception–action system undergoes continuous change well into adolescence. As in other areas of development (e.g., face perception, word recognition), this kind of gradual developmental change appears critical for the fine-tuning of the system. The late development of these skills may explain also why adolescent pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers continue to be at risk for collisions when crossing roads. Further work aimed at better understanding the developmental mechanisms underlying these changes will inform the fields of both developmental science and injury prevention.
       
  • The Development of Object Fitting: The Dynamics of Spatial Coordination
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 28 May 2018Source: Advances in Child Development and BehaviorAuthor(s): Jeffrey J. Lockman, Nicholas E. Fears, Wendy P. Jung Fitting objects into apertures is an adaptive skill that is incorporated into the design of many tools. We match or align shapes with openings when we insert keys into locks, when we put lids atop containers, or when we align a screwdriver with the groove of a screw. Traditionally, the development of object fitting has focused on children's abilities to successfully complete shape sorter tasks (e.g., square peg through square hole). By measuring children's success in these tasks, investigators have determined that there is substantial development during the second year, but little research has addressed the processes children employ to solve object fitting challenges during this time period. Here, we provide a process based account of object fitting, which emphasizes how children coordinate information about spatial structure with action. We suggest that a process-based approach can illuminate the real-time dynamics of perceiving, acting, and thinking.
       
  • Physical Growth, Body Scale, and Perceptual-Motor Development
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 May 2018Source: Advances in Child Development and BehaviorAuthor(s): Karl M. Newell, Michael G. Wade In this chapter we consider from the theoretical framework of the ecological approach to perception and action, the relations between physical growth and body scale in the context of children's perceptual-motor development. Body scale and the timescale of its change through growth are shown to relate to the emergence and dissolution of the fundamental skills in infancy, the perception of what an environment affords functionally for action, together with the emergent pattern of movement coordination. A central issue in typical and atypical motor development is the mapping of the timescale of adaptive change in the acquisition of perceptual-motor skill to the accompanying timescale of change in physical growth.
       
  • The Development of Sensorimotor Intelligence in Infants
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 May 2018Source: Advances in Child Development and BehaviorAuthor(s): Claes von Hofsten, Kerstin Rosander Infancy is the most dynamic part of human development. During this period, all basic sensorimotor and cognitive abilities are established. In this chapter, we will trace some of the important achievements of this development with a focus on how infants achieve predictive control of actions, i.e., how they come to coordinate their behavior with the ongoing events in the world without lagging behind. With the maturation of the brain, new possibilities that have profound effects on cognition open up. Some of them are core abilities, i.e., they function at birth or very early in development. Important examples are the structured perception of objects and surfaces and the control of arm movements. Closely after birth, infants move their arms to the vicinity of objects in front of them demonstrating that they have some control of their arms and indicating that they perceive objects as such. Another example is the rapid onset of smooth-pursuit eye movements during the second month of life and the emerging ability to predict when and where an occluded moving object will reappear. At 4 months of age, out of sight is no longer of mind. The child's sensorimotor system is especially designed to facilitate the extraction of knowledge about the world including other people. In addition, the infant is endowed with motives that ensure that the innate predispositions are transformed into a system of knowledge for guiding actions predictively. By perceiving and acting on the world, infants develop their cognition and through developmental studies; we can learn more about these processes.
       
  • Chapter Two - Cognition–Action Trade-Offs Reflect Organization of
           Attention in Infancy
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Child Development and Behavior, Volume 54Author(s): Sarah E. Berger, Regina T. Harbourne, Melissa N. Horger This chapter discusses what cognition–action trade-offs in infancy reveal about the organization and developmental trajectory of attention. We focus on internal attention because this aspect is most relevant to the immediate concerns of infancy, such as fluctuating levels of expertise, balancing multiple taxing skills simultaneously, learning how to control attention under variable conditions, and coordinating distinct psychological domains. Cognition–action trade-offs observed across the life span include perseveration during skill emergence, errors and inefficient strategies during decision making, and the allocation of resources when attention is taxed. An embodied cognitive-load account interprets these behavioral patterns as a result of limited attentional resources allocated across simultaneous, taxing task demands. For populations where motor errors could be costly, like infants and the elderly, attention is typically devoted to motor demands with errors occurring in the cognitive domain. In contrast, healthy young adults tend to preserve their cognitive performance by modifying their actions.
       
  • Chapter One - A Social-Interactive Neuroscience Approach to Understanding
           the Developing Brain
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Child Development and Behavior, Volume 54Author(s): Elizabeth Redcay, Katherine Rice Warnell From birth onward, social interaction is central to our everyday lives. Our ability to seek out social partners, flexibly navigate and learn from social interactions, and develop social relationships is critically important for our social and cognitive development and for our mental and physical health. Despite the importance of our social interactions, the neurodevelopmental bases of such interactions are underexplored, as most research examines social processing in noninteractive contexts. We begin this chapter with evidence from behavioral work and adult neuroimaging studies demonstrating how social-interactive context fundamentally alters cognitive and neural processing. We then highlight four brain networks that play key roles in social interaction and, drawing on existing developmental neuroscience literature, posit the functional roles these networks may play in social-interactive development. We conclude by discussing how a social-interactive neuroscience approach holds great promise for advancing our understanding of both typical and atypical social development.

  • Chapter Eight - Kin Networks and Mobility in the Transition to Adulthood
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Child Development and Behavior, Volume 54Author(s): Janel E. Benson, Anastassia Bougakova Family support is critical for launching youth into successful adult lives. Although studies have documented the association between family support and success in the transition to young adulthood, existing work focuses primarily on parental support, giving little attention to extended kin. This narrow definition of family may miss critical exchanges of support, especially among low-income families. Drawing on panel survey data (n = 450) and in-depth interviews (n = 52) with young women from the Philadelphia Educational Longitudinal Study, this study expands our understanding of family support in the transition to adulthood by examining young adults’ kin networks and the types of support and resources embedded within these networks. We find that kin support is an important buffer for those growing up in households without two biological parents, reducing the odds of perceiving oneself as an adult, having a child, and moving out. Qualitative data show that kin often step-in and play a parent-like role, providing needed instrumental and emotional support. Our results also highlight the complexity and fragility of kin network exchanges. While kin networks can be a source of resilience, they are often fragile and subject to external shocks, such as job loss and health declines. Moreover, kin networks can also be a source of obligation, delaying young adults’ investments in their own educational trajectories. Those giving back to families are less likely to be in college compared to their peers and more likely to work, live independently, and consider themselves an adult.
       
  • Chapter Six - Trends and Divergences in Childhood Income Dynamics,
           1970–2010
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Child Development and Behavior, Volume 54Author(s): Heather D. Hill Earnings and income variability have increased since the 1970s, particularly at the bottom of the income distribution. Considerable evidence suggests that childhood income levels—captured as average or point-in-time yearly income—are associated with numerous child and adult outcomes. The importance to child development of stable proximal processes during childhood suggests that income variability may also be important, particularly if it is unpredictable, unintentional, or does not reflect an upward trend in family income. Using the Panel Study of Income Dynamics, this study documents trends since the 1970s in three dimensions of childhood income dynamics: level, variability, and growth (n = 7991). The analysis reveals that income variability during childhood has grown over time, while income growth rates have not. In addition, the economic context of childhood has diverged substantially by socioeconomic status, race, and family structure, with the most disadvantaged children facing a double-whammy of low income and high variability.
       
  • Chapter Five - The Developmental Origins of Dehumanization
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Child Development and Behavior, Volume 54Author(s): Niamh McLoughlin, Harriet Over Dehumanization is a complex social phenomenon, intimately connected to intergroup harm and neglect. However, developmental research has only recently started to investigate this important topic. In this chapter, we review research in areas closely related to dehumanization including children's intergroup preferences, essentialist conceptions of social groups, and understanding of relative status. We then highlight the small number of recent studies that have investigated the development of this social bias more directly. We close by making a series of suggestions for future research that will enable us to better understand the nature and causes of this harmful phenomenon.
       
  • Chapter Seven - Social Influence on Positive Youth Development: A
           Developmental Neuroscience Perspective
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Child Development and Behavior, Volume 54Author(s): Eva H. Telzer, Jorien van Hoorn, Christina R. Rogers, Kathy T. Do Susceptibility to social influence is associated with a host of negative outcomes during adolescence. However, emerging evidence implicates the role of peers and parents in adolescents’ positive and adaptive adjustment. Hence, in this chapter we highlight social influence as an opportunity for promoting social adjustment, which can redirect negative trajectories and help adolescents thrive. We discuss influential models about the processes underlying social influence, with a particular emphasis on internalizing social norms, embedded in social learning and social identity theory. We link this behavioral work to developmental social neuroscience research, rooted in neurobiological models of decision making and social cognition. Work from this perspective suggests that the adolescent brain is highly malleable and particularly oriented toward the social world, which may account for heightened susceptibility to social influences during this developmental period. This chapter underscores the need to leverage social influences during adolescence, even beyond the family and peer context, to promote positive developmental outcomes. By further probing the underlying neural mechanisms as an additional layer to examining social influence on positive youth development, we will be able to gain traction on our understanding of this complex phenomenon.
       
  • Chapter Four - Children's Developing Ideas About Knowledge and Its
           Acquisition
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Child Development and Behavior, Volume 54Author(s): Samuel Ronfard, Deborah T. Bartz, Liao Cheng, Xinkui Chen, Paul L. Harris We review key aspects of young children's concept of knowledge. First, we discuss children's early insights into the way that information can be communicated from informant to recipient as well as their active search for information via questions. We then analyze the way that preschool children talk explicitly and cogently about knowledge and the presuppositions they make in doing so. We argue that all children, irrespective of culture and language, eventually arrive at the same fundamental conception of knowledge in the preschool years. Nevertheless, despite the universality of this basic conception, young children are likely to show considerable variation in their pattern of information seeking, depending on the conversational practices of their family and culture.
       
  • Chapter Three - Above and Beyond Objects: The Development of
           Infants’ Spatial Concepts
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2018Source: Advances in Child Development and Behavior, Volume 54Author(s): Marianella Casasola Early in development infants form categorical representations of small-scale spatial relations, such as left vs right and above vs below. This spatial skill allows infants to experience coherence in the layout of the objects in their environment and to note the equivalence of a spatial relation across changes in objects. Comparisons across studies of infant spatial categorization offer insight into the processes that contribute to the development of this skill. Rather than viewing contrasting results across studies as contradictory, identifying how infant spatial categorization tasks recruit distinct processes can not only reconcile findings but also yield insight into the starting points, development, and emerging nature of infants’ representations of spatial relations. Also, situating infants’ spatial categorization in the context of advances in nonspatial domains may reveal synergistic relations among these domains, particularly in relation to advances in infants’ manipulative play with objects and their acquisition of spatial language. A central argument is that broadening the study of infants’ spatial categorization may yield further insights into the nature of early spatial concepts and the processes that promote their development.
