Professor Susan Hespos describes her research into the abstract reasoning skills and cognitive development of infants. Her team performed experiments to determine whether babies tell the difference between matching and nonmatching pairs of toys. They concluded that babies do have the capacity to do this, but that it could be disrupted by object focus.
