HDE100a midterm

  1. rate of growth during 2nd year
    • -accelerated myelination in cerebral cortex
    • -myelinations of connection within cerebral cortex
    • -maturation of brain areas roughly equal except for PFC
    • -rate of growth is slower than during the first year
    • height 29-38 inches weight 20-33 lbs
  2. major brain area undergoing synaptogenesis during age 2. What new behaviors emerge?
    • the frontal lobe
    • -perceptual, locomotor, manual dexterity, control of elimination
    • -new modes of though-symbolic thought, problem solving, pretend play, pictures and models

    • prefrontal cortex

    • -ability to vary actions of substage 4 (engage in behavior towards acheiving a goal) systematical and flexibly
    • -experiments in order to see: children are trying to find out about nature of objects and events. still using trial and error.
    • -infants still can't reason systematically about actions and anticipate the consequences
    • -passed a not be test but failed if distracted, will still look in the original place
  4. piaget's sensorimotor substage 6
