Exploring the intelligence-gathering and decision-making processes of infants

A growing body of scientific research is dramatically changing scientists' understanding of babies' cognition. In this TEDGlobal 2011 talk posted online today, Alison Gopnik, PhD, a psychologist at UC Berkeley, discusses how young children learn about the world around them, the difference between infants and adults' consciousness, and why she believes "babies and young children are like the R&D division of the human species." The insightful video is worth taking the time to watch, especially for parents curious about their child's inner thoughts.
