  To make sense of the world, infants have to perceive it, and research into the development of sensory and perceptual abilities is one of the most exciting and important areas of infancy research.

To make sense of the world, infants have to perceive it, and research into the development of sensory and perceptual abilities is one of the most exciting and important areas of infancy research.

This chapter provides a short overview on the perceptual abilities of dogs. Vision, audition, and olfaction are described in detail, including the possible experimental methods which could be used for studying such phenomena as colour vision, form recognition, hearing acuity, or olfactory sensitivity. Understanding of perceptual abilities can be important in relating the animal's behaviour to. development. In contrast to the view which states that the senses are separate at birth, the differentiation view, articulated by Eleanor J. Gibson, proposes that the senses are all unified at birth and that perceptual development is characterised as a gradual process of differentiating increasingly finer levels of sensory stimulation. Perceptual development refers to the development of these senses, and this takes place mainly in the first year of life, according to the majority of research into this area. The sensory organs of children and their connections with the respective areas of the central nervous system show a dramatic development during the first year of life.   Perceptual development allows a young human being to start interpreting and understanding sensory input. The process of perceptual development is very closely linked to motor development. For example, as infants grow, they begin to be able to support their heads on their own, and to turn their heads so that their eyes can scan their environment.

cognitive and perceptual development, he has attempted to build upon Piaget's work. Dr. Elkind's extensive bibliography includes over books, articles, chapters, and pieces for the popular press. His Child Develop ment and Education: A Piagetian Perspec tive will be published in by the Oxford University Press. The author wishes to. Perceptual Development Perceptual development is a process of learning about affordances, becoming better able to detect appropriate supports and resources, and discovering new affordances as action capabilities change (Gibson, ). From: International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences (Second Edition), Books Recommended by The UVA Division of Perceptual Studies Staff The following is a list of books on various aspects of psychical research (also known as parapsychology) that are recommended by the faculty at the Division of Perceptual Studies. There are books on psychical research in general, many of which cover a variety of topics, [ ].   Or how that would develop into how we, as adults, view the world. David Bohm describes that development of perception in the appendix of the book The Special Theory of Relativity. That book itself was too difficult for me to read, but as I heard him mention that appendix in an interview, I wanted to read that and see if it would make sense to me.
