Description

U-Shaped Behavioral Growth discusses a phenomenon called “U-shaped behavioral growth”, in which some behaviors appear, disappear, and then reappear over time.

This book covers structuralist approaches, production system models of information processing, rule systems approach, nativism, and a model of how maturation factors may influence U-shaped behavioral growth. A broad range of content domains that compare where there is and there is no overlap in the understanding of the developmental processes occurring in U-shaped behavioral growth is also included. The domains considered include the development of physical and musical concepts, metaphor production, artistic production, face perception, social cognition, and language acquisition.

This publication is a good reference for psychologists, psychiatrists, and medical practitioners conducting work on the U-shaped behavioral growth.
