Search of an object: Modifications of spatial references in the 8 to 14 month old infant / Recherche de l'objet: Modifications des references spatiales chez le bebe de 8 a 14 mois.

Investigated spatial organization in 24 Ss of 3 age levels (8 mo 11 days, 9 mo 16 days, and 12 mo 5 days) in experiments involving an object search task in a 3-screen situation. Exp I showed that manual search behavior varied between 8 and 14 mo of age. This variation was analyzed according to the "place error" question. In Exp II, the relationship between the S and the environment was systematically modified and Ss' behavior analyzed with respect to such a spatial modification. Results show that Ss' spatial organization was dichotomous. (11 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
