Basic data

Title:
Die Entwicklung modaler und amodaler Repräsentationen
Duration:
01/11/2020 to 31/10/2023
Abstract / short description:
The present project investigates representations along the modal-to-amodal continuum from an ontogenetic perspective. The developing cognitive system might initially have only modal representations available with amodal representations emerging via a process of abstraction, or it might have access to rudimentary amodal representations from early on. This project will investigate the evidence for the two trajectories within three domains of cognition – evaluative learning in infancy, the format of magnitude representation in childhood, and executive control processes in childhood. Therewith, this proposal will improve the understanding on how representational formats develop.
