ur videos are very clear ..but like memory and learning chapters , it would be beneficial to have cognition,language and intelligence as a whole chapters videos ..do u have all videos under this chapter ?if yes could u tell me which one ? i havent found it here
There is a wrong statement used here which is children in the age group of 2-7 are egocentric , this is wrong as children when they reach the age of 13 start becoming egocentric and moreover egocentrism was a theory which was given by David Elkind and not piaget
i am from norway and have about his theory in my exam, but i have to say that this is so much easier to understand than the books! even though it is not my first language, i got more out of this! thank you :D
Thanks, it was a good video. Although, I'm still laughing at "Go find a child and see in what stage he's in." I pictured someone going in the street and test a random child. Will the phrase "Sorry, it was for science" be acceptable enough to avoid jail? Ah ah ah
"So go find a child and see what stage they're in"
I would hope that we are in the process of refining the fourth stage and have considered the consequences of finding a child and submitting them to tests. LoL
Great lecture! Thank you!
I believe that the explanation for object permanence may be incorrect. The video states that, "object permanence means that infants don't recognize that objects still exist even though they cannot see them. So for example, if you give an infant a toy o something, say you have a nice ball for them and you take it away they won't look for it because they don't understand that it still exist."
During the sensorimotor stage object permanence allows the child to recognize that objects CONTINUE to exist even when they are OUT OF SIGHT. An example would be when a child searches for a toy that is hidden under a blanket, even if they toy cannot be seen.
I think you all should correct this information so that individuals who are looking at this material for clarity and as an additional study material they are provided the right information.
By the way, if you really want to be such a perfectionist, then I have to correct you as well. The object doesn't just have to be 'out of sight'. It can't be observed, which includes also touch, hearing, smell and any other sense.
The explanations are not correct. I would double check what you may have picked up from this video from other material. The explanation for example of object permanence during the sensorimotor stage was grossly inaccurate. She explained the opposite of the definition stating that a child cannot recognize an object once it is out of sight when during this stage a child is recognizing in fact that the object still exist even when it is not in sight. I would question the rest of the video's information, just fyi.
I think you weren't paying attention, 'cause that was actually what she was explaining. She said, up until the concrete operational stage, the child will answer incorrectly. And that you can test if a child have reached the operational stage by the answer.
object permanence explanation during sensorimotor is incorrect. During this stage a child recognizes that objects continue to exist even when they are out of sight. The video states and provides an example that a child is not able to recognize that an object exist even after it is removed from it's sight.

Sorry but the 2 - 7 year old pre-operational stage is completely wrong as presented in this video. Children (who do not have developmental delays) learn to speak before they're 2 and they already understand how to play hide and seek without merely covering their own eyes long before the age of seven. It's explained in a very clear manner but it seems as if you're somewhat confused in your explanation. The object permanence mentioned in the first stage is when they don't realise that they haven't disappeared just by covering their own eyes because they don't realise their own permanence.
You know they were also incorrect during the sensorimotor stage. Their understanding for object permanence was the complete opposite of the definition. I have absolutely no faith in any of their other videos going forward now.
+Candice Goddard It is true, but she's explaining it the way Piaget had intended. The ages Piaget described are one of the few things other psychologists disagree on about Piaget's theory. He seemed to underestimate the abilities of what children can actually do.
This American life produced a long episode that was completely antithetical to this suggesting that children are much more like little scientists compiling poor data that is increasingly representative. It’s called kid logic; it seems to provide a more balanced perspective on kids observations in a way that’s more determined by language than this flimsy model.
Cognitive Learning AS the Basis of Individual Identity
The role of cognitive learning - both through non-verbal and verbal interaction - in identity formation is as much ubiquitous as it is ephemeral!
This means that every orientation, disposition, attitude, belief, and every other facet of individual identity we ASSUME, represents nothing more than an ever-evolving amalgam of learned cognitive constructs.
Non-verbal learning plays a particular role in identity development because:
a. It formulates the foundation of how we interact with our environment and learn.
- and -
b. Once we're aware of the learned nature of identity, that awareness immediately debunks the "born that way" canard, as well as every other personality/identity trait we'd previously presumed to be innate.
This awareness is an acknowledgement that whatever inchoate energy it is that animates our physical body, it has NO IDENTITY at all - genetic, predestined, pre-determined, or otherwise.
Bottom line is that, as far as metaphysical (as opposed to physical) identity is concerned, NO ONE is "born that way"!
Don't worry, your child is not a genius. :-D The development of 'object permanence' starts between 4 and 7 months of age. But it is fully developed by the end of the 'sensorimotor stage', when the child is about 2 years old.
i disagree with the object permanence, my kid remembers too well that the objects we show or he sees and plays with do exist, because whenever we put the thing in a different place than where he first saw it, he comes looking for it by pointing tov the place where he first saw it, then when he sees it in a different place moments later he giggles like the cutest baby on earth. im sorry, but i think your object permanence stuff is just made up
OMG, hold on everyone, object permanence is a lie and SHE DISCOVERED THE CONSPIRACY, FUCKING PEEKABOO IS A GODDAMN CONSPIRACY AND HER GOD-GENIUS BABY SHOWED HER, ANOTHER PROBABLY STRAIGHT A COLLEGE STUDENT OFFERING NOTHING. HOW about explain how your baby grew out of this stage and explain these characteristics and G and D patterns
+sylver hyacinth doronila This is a very basic and short explanation of Piaget's theory of cognitive development. What they didn't mention in the video is that object permanence has it's own stages of development. Infants begin to develop their very earliest understanding of OP when they're around 8 to 12 months old, later they become more successful in retrieving concealed objects and by the end of the sensorimotor stage, which is around 18 to 24 months of age, they should fully understand the concept of object permanence. Your son seems to have acted accordingly, it's not unusual for his age. Some recent evidence show that slight awareness of object permanence can happen even earlier than Piaget asserted.
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
