Description: A core text for undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in Cognitive Development; graduate-level courses in Advanced Developmental Psychology; and a supplemental text for sophomore through graduate-level courses in Human Development. Cutting-edge and big-picture in perspective, this popular introduction to cognitive development focuses on both the fascinating nature of children's thinking and the excitement and change in work in this area. Using an integrated topical approach, it explores the numerous forms of childhood cognition including perception, memory, and language. More theoretically balanced than other texts, it considers the full spectrum of approachesfrom Piaget's developmental stages, to information-processing (including connectionism), dynamic systems, contextual, theory-change, neo-Piagetian, evolutionary, neuroscience, and constraint approaches.
