Description - Introducing Cognitive Development by Laura Taylor

Interest in cognitive development has been resurgent in recent years as a result of continuing improvements in technology and the new methods of research these enable. Introducing Cognitive Development brings a new focus and clarity to this theoretically complex area. Using numerous illustrations and examples it describes the specific changes that occur in cognition from infancy through childhood. The reader is introduced to the topic with a review of traditional approaches to the study of cognitive development and a consideration of recent advances in the field, particularly in cognitive science. Key issues, including the relative contributions of nature and nurture, domain generality versus domain specificity and the child's own role in its development, are considered in relation to a range of topics such as: The development of symbolic thought; Theory of mind and social cognition; Development of language This book provides an accessible and readable introduction to cognitive development suitable for undergraduate students in psychology and related disciplines, as well as anyone involved in working with children.
