PSY 345 Motor Development(RNL)

4 hours; 4 credits. A central goal for this class is to understand the psychological aspects of motor development. Over their first two years of life, babies' bodies, skills, and environments change rapidly and dramatically. How do infants learn to cope with a changeable body in a variable world? In this class, we will discuss infant motor development in the context of traditionally separate domains of psychology-perceptual, cognitive, and social development. Prerequisite: PSY 242.
