The Developing Mind
Stefanie Powers, Editor  May 2008
Item No.: 394-OLB

Researchers have gained remarkable insight into how and what infants can understand about the minds of others. The result is a revolutionary new understanding of early social cognition. Leading researchers from the field of developmental and social psychology contributed to this issue of Zero to Three. They describe elegant experimental designs that demonstrate how, far from being egocentric, infants and toddlers have a surprising awareness of the emotions, interests, intentions, and goals of others. From the first moments of life, infants show a preference for human faces and voices, and can even imitate adult facial expressions. A new understanding of how much infants are taking in and processing about others raises compelling questions about how adults influence children's psychological development.
