November 26, 2013

Nothing is more important in early human development than learning to use the symbols through which we communicate with one another. In this lecture, Dr. DeLoache reviews her research on the challenges that infants and very young children face as they become symbol-minded– as they figure out the nature and use of a variety of everyday symbolic objects.
