Abstract:Experiments described in this dissertation suggested that by highlighting a variable in infants' object-representation system, we may prime infants to attend to a variable in an event category; once included in the physical-reasoning system, the information about the variable will be interpreted by infants' core knowledge, allowing them to detect persistence violations involving the variable and guiding them to act appropriately in an event.
