PSY 343 Infancy
4 hours; 4 credits
This course is concerned with how infants come to understand the world around them. Students will learn classic and current theoretical perspectives on infant development as well as methodologies and results from recent empirical papers. We will discuss what sort of evidence would provide a meaningful answer to the question of how learning occurs. Topics to be discussed include prenatal development, physical and motor development, and cognitive, perceptual, language, and emotional development.
