1.The perception of an object’s size as the same, despite changes in the size of its retinal image
4.An organized growth pattern that proceeds from “head to tail”; growth of the head and chest occurs before that of the trunk and legs.
5.The coating of neural fibers with an insulating fatty sheath
7.Newborns prefer to look at patterned rather than plain stimuli, a preference explained by contrast sensitivity
12.The action possibilities a situation offers an organism with certain motor capabilities—which infants come across as they act on their world.
13.At around 2 months, infants can focus on objects about as well as adults. By 6 months, babies’ visual acuity is about 20/20, a near-adult level.
14.When diet and health are adequate, height and rate of physical growth are largely determined by this
15.Mastery of motor skills involves acquiring increasingly complex systems of action
18.A growth pattern that continues from the center of the body outward; the arms and legs grow before the hands and feet.
19.A form of learning in which infants act on the environment, and stimuli that follow their behavior change the probability that the behavior will occur again.
20.Copying the behavior of another person
23.Gross-motor development refers to control over actions that help an infant move around in the environment, such as crawling, standing, and walking. Fine-motor development involves smaller movements, such as reaching and grasping.
24.Accounts for 85 percent of the brain’s weight and contains the greatest number of neurons and synapses.
25.This is best delayed until after the second birthday, when children can consistently identify the signals from a full bladder or rectum and can control those muscles.
26.This sculpts away excess building material to form the mature brain
2.When a neutral stimulus is paired with a stimulus that triggers a reflexive response
3.At first, babies rely heavily on motion and spatial arrangement to identify objects. As they observe objects’ motions, they pick up information about objects’ boundaries, such as shape, color, and texture
4.Cultural beliefs vary concerning the necessity and advisability of deliberately teaching motor skills to babies.
6.The ability to judge the distance of objects from one another and from ourselves.
8.This is ideally suited to infants’ needs and offers many nutritional and health advantages over bottle-feeding.
9.Combines information from more than one modality, or sensory system.
10.The ability of areas of the brain to take over functions of a damaged region
11.A wasted condition of the body caused by a diet low in all essential nutrients.
16.Periods in which the brain is developing most rapidly
17.Caused by a diet very low in protein
21.This plays a vital role in infant cognitive development because, by manipulating things, infants learn a great deal about the sights, sounds, and feel of objects.
22.Nerve cells that store and transmit information
