Co-ordination of actions, visual perception, and inhibition in human and non-human primate development

By Pr O Vauclair and Pr O Houdé


The originality of Langer's approach to cognitive development (Langer, 1980, 1986) lies in the study of the pragmatic components (actions, object manipulations) of protologicomathematical and protophysical cognition before the age of 2. This perspective falls in line with Piaget's constructive psychology
