Preschool children are subject to peer pressure, indicating to peers as a primary social reference group already during the preschool years.
Can language restructure cognition? The case for space
How does cognition evolve? Phylogenetic comparative psychology
Here, it is explained how an integration of comparative psychology and evolutionary biology will answer a host of questions regarding the phylogenetic distribution and history of cognitive traits, as well as the evolutionary processes that drove their evolution.
Returning the tables: language affects spatial reasoning
The persistent sampling bias in developmental psychology: A call to action.
Great Apes' Risk-Taking Strategies in a Decision Making Task
All four great ape species' preferences were ordered in a manner consistent with normative dictates of expected value, but varied predictably in their willingness to take risks.
Evolutionary Psychology of Spatial Representations in the Hominidae
Aging and path integration skill: Kinesthetic and vestibular contributions to wayfinding
Correlational evidence suggested that cognitive resources were significant factors in accounting for age-related decline in path integration performance.
Body-based senses enhance knowledge of directions in large-scale environments
This work examines whether the additional body-based cues that result from active movement facilitate the acquisition of spatial knowledge in the form of vestibular, proprioceptive, and efferent information resulting from passive transport through a large environment.

Chimpanzees’ and bonobos’ performance in the temporal encoding task was age-dependent, following an inverted U-shaped distribution, and a memory task that required no temporal encoding was included, showing that apes remember in an integrated fashion what, where and when an event happened.
