Abstract or Description

Research on early object concept formation has the potential to provide a unique contribution to the debate between constructivism and nativism but has, thus far, generated only controversy. New research by Kochukhova and Gredebäck that examined infants' predictions of the reappearance of an occluded object offers new insight into not only when but how such concepts are acquired.
