    • Bootstrapping & the Origin of Concepts 

      Carey, Susan E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press, 2004)
      No abstract provided.
    • Children’s multiplicative transformations of discrete and continuous quantities 

      Barth, Hilary; Baron, Andrew; Spelke, Elizabeth S.; Carey, Susan E. (Elsevier BV, 2009)
      Recent studies have documented an evolutionarily primitive, early emerging cognitive system for the mental representation of numerical quantity (the analog magnitude system). Studies with non-human primates, human infants, ...
    • Constraints on the Acquisition of Social Category Concepts 

      Baron, Andrew Scott; Dunham, Yarrow; Banaji, Mahzarin R.; Carey, Susan E. (Informa UK Limited, 2014)
      Determining which dimensions of social classification are culturally significant is a developmental challenge. Some suggest this is accomplished by differentially privileging intrinsic visual cues over nonintrinsic cues ...
    • Contingency is not enough: Social context guides third-party attributions of intentional agency. 

      Beier, Jonathan S.; Carey, Susan E. (American Psychological Association (APA), 2014)
      Four experiments investigated whether infants and adults infer that a novel entity that interacts in a contingent, communicative fashion with an experimenter is itself an intentional agent. The experiments contrasted the ...
    • Development of face recognition: A maturational component? 

      Carey, Susan E.; Diamond, Rhea; Woods, Bryan (American Psychological Association (APA), 1980)
      Assessed the development in approximately 160 6–16 yr old Ss of the ability to encode unfamiliar faces. Performance improved markedly between ages 6 and 10 and then remained at a fixed level or actually declined for several ...
    • Developmental Changes in the Representation of Faces 

      Diamond, R; Carey, Susan E. (Elsevier BV, 1977)
      Children from age 6 to 16 judged which of two photographs of unfamiliar faces showed the same person as an inspection photograph. Recognition accuracy improved markedly between ages 6 and 10 with little change thereafter. ...
    • First-Person Action Experience Reveals Sensitivity to Action Efficiency in Prereaching Infants 

      Skerry, Amy; Carey, Susan E.; Spelke, Elizabeth S. (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2013)
      Do infants learn to interpret others’ actions through their own experience producing goal-directed action, or does some knowledge of others’ actions precede first-person experience? Several studies report that motor ...
    • From Piecemeal to Configurational Representation of Faces 

      Carey, Susan E.; Diamond, R (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 1977)
      Unlike older children and adults, children of less than about 10 years of age remember photographs of faces presented upside down almost as well as those shown upright and are easily fooled by simple disguises. The development ...
    • Infants' and toddlers' reasoning about others: Connections to prosocial development and language 

      Hobbs, Kathryn Virginia (2014-10-21)
      Often overlooked in the study of theory of mind (ToM) development, the understanding of motivational states, such as goals and desires, is both an important capacity in its own right and also a likely precursor to more ...
    • Near-Infrared Spectroscopy Shows Right Parietal Specialization for Number in Pre-Verbal Infants 

      Hyde, Daniel Charles; Boas, David A.; Blair, Clancy; Carey, Susan E. (Elsevier, 2010)
      Bilateral regions of the intraparietal sulcus (IPS) appear to be functionally selective for both rudimentary non-symbolic number tasks and higher-level symbolic number tasks in adults and older children. Furthermore, the ...
    • Proper and Common Nouns: Form Class Judgments in Broca's Aphasia 

      Grossman, Murray; Carey, Susan E.; Zurif, Edgar; Diller, Lisa (Elsevier BV, 1986)
      Studies of agrammatic Broca's aphasics' comprehension of sentences containing articles have demonstrated profound deficits. It has not been clear whether the impairments are due to an inability to isolate the article in ...
    • Reasoning about ‘irrational’ actions: When intentional movements cannot be explained, the movements themselves are seen as the goal 

      Brady, Adena Michelle; Carey, Susan E. (Elsevier BV, 2013)
      Infants and adults are thought to infer the goals of observed actions by calculating the actions’ efficiency as a means to particular external effects, like teaching an object or location. However, many intentional actions ...
    • Science and Core Knowledge 

      Carey, Susan E.; Spelke, Elizabeth S. (University of Chicago Press, 1996)
      While endorsing Gopnik's proposal that studies of the emergence and modification of scientific theories and studies of cognitive development in children are mutually illuminating, we offer a different picture of the ...
