Press Release 11-128
Research Shows 16-month-olds Infer Causes of Failed Actions

Findings have implications for learning strategies

Back to article | Note about images

Infants infer whether a toy fails to work because of their actions or a reason beyond their control.

Research shows infants are able to make accurate judgments about whether a toy failed to operate due their own mistake or due to circumstances beyond their control. The findings could be important to developing learning strategies for both children and adults.
