What are “schema?”Describe and discuss the processes of adaptation to new information.3. Describe the information-processingtheory of cognition, and discuss how changes in the areas of affordances,categorization, and memory abilities have contributed to our understanding ofinfant cognition.4. Compare and contrast Skinner’s andChomsky’s theories of language development. What is the current thinking aboutthe processes of language development?
