Previous research shows that sensory and motor systems interact during perception, but how these connections among systems are created during development is unknown. The current work exposes young children to novel 'verbs' and objects through either (a) actively exploring the objects or (b) by seeing an experimenter interact with the objects. Results(More)

How objects are held determines how they are seen, and may thereby play an important developmental role in building visual object representations. Previous research suggests that toddlers, like adults, show themselves a disproportionate number of planar object views - that is, views in which the objects' axes of elongation are perpendicular or parallel to(More)
There has been considerable interest in the role of dopamine D(3) receptors in appetitive conditioning but few studies have examined their role in aversive conditioning. The present study examined the effect of the dopamine D(3) receptor-preferring partial agonist BP 897 (1-(4-(2-naphthoyl-amino)butyl)-4-(2-methoxyhenyl)-1A-piperazine hydrochloride) and the(More)
RATIONALE The nucleus accumbens (NAc) plays a central role in dopamine-produced reward-related learning. In previous studies, the cyclic adenosine monophosphate-dependent protein kinase (PKA) inhibitor Rp-Cyclic 3',5'-hydrogen phosphorothioate adenosine triethylammonium salt (Rp-cAMPS) blocked the acquisition but not expression of NAc reward-related(More)
