Particular attention should be given to the theoretical framework (Piaget's Theory and constructivist perspective), hypotheses to contrast (levels), information gathering and common difficulties. "Levels" in quantity conservation test: Level of absence of term-to-term correspondence: 4-5 years. Simple intuition. Consider the global and static configuration ...

This is a really neat question. A strong predictor of cognitive ability is one's environmental enrichment, or the stimulation of the brain in its physical and social surroundings. Those with sensory deprivation often have less success with social situations and self-esteem, as well as (presumably) less sensory input coming in. The implication is that lack ...

I suspect you are thinking of Karmiloff-Smith's work. Here's an excerpt from an '88 article almost exactly matching the description. Children were asked to balance a series of blocks on a narrow metal support. Some of the blocks had their weight evenly distributed and balanced at their geometric centre. Others had been drilled with lead in one end ...

"Daddy issues" is not a well-defined term, however, the extrapolation of attachment style theory answers to this question somewhat. Relationship outcomes of different attachment styles (this is not clearly cognitive science, and more precisely "family issues" instead of "daddy issues") Stack Overflow thread about the topic (I'm new here, and amazed how ...

Yes, there have been a number of studies on language development in children with congenital profound visual impairment (PVI) over the years. Selma Fraiberg first described differences in early development, specifically later emergence of personal pronouns compared to typically sighted children [1]. More recent studies found that the vocabulary development ...

Here's a thesis on the effects of "daddy issues" on women's later relationships. Its content and its citations may be enough to satisfy your interest. Jackson, L. M. (2010).

This question is quite broad, firstly, because these tests measure different (though interrelated) cognitive faculties and at different developmental stages and secondly because there is a lot to say for each sensory impairment. However, it touches on quite interesting topics for which there have been many studies and I think a summary of the findings can be ...

In a way, I agree with the answer given by AivanF. But more can be said. One of the greatest biologist of our times, the scientist Edward O. Wilson has something to say about what humanity has been calling good and evil, regardless of any particular world view. "What have been thought of as moral sentiments are now taken to mean moral instincts (as ...

I think answers to your questions are fully based on your moral principles and your world view. Because there is no obvious common principles. Christians believe in objective rightness of God's rules. For atheists that is good doing, what is good for person and society. Some wild men can think that eating each other is a good thing for many generations. In ...

Unfortunately, answers to these questions are not yet available. As Morgan et al (2016) put it: ... whether and to what extent science achievement gaps display stable, cumulative, or compensatory growth trajectories are unknown. This has been due to the lack of large-scale, multivariate, and longitudinal studies, particularly those following ...

Since pycnodysostosis is caused by mutations that cause deficiency in Cathepsin K, it makes sense to look at animal models for the latter; there's a fairly recent study Dauth, 2011... Cathepsin K deficiency in mice induces structural and metabolic changes in the central nervous system that are associated with learning and memory deficits. [...] ...

Before we can even begin to discuss how to measure a person's relative good and bad degrees, we must define good and bad. These terms are far too vague on the surface. Even if we agreed on more specific terms such as moral and immoral, there would still be a fair amount of disagreement on their meanings. For example, moral could be grounded in religion; ...
