Summary
Written especially for this volume by experts in psychology, linguistics, anthropology, and education, these essays present the essence of particular programs of research: a look at emotional behavior during infancy; the significance of parental speech patterns in English- and Spanish- speaking families; research on the development of perception and memory among children; studies of the influence of nutrition on children; inquiries into the universality of Piaget's theories; articles on formal versus informal schooling; an investigation of moral development. These and other essays in Culture Perspectives on Child Development offer first-hand accounts of research that will be of interest to students and professionals in psychology and social anthropology
