This perspective ﬁts well with a dual-process model. BOX 3 Concept formation by perceptual analysis Perceptual analysis is a process in which a given perceptual array is attentively analysed and a new kind of information abstracted. The information is new in the sense that a piece of perceptual information is recoded into a nonperceptual form that represents a meaning. The process is different from the usual perceptual processing, which occurs automatically and is typically not under the attentive control of the perceiver.
G. legs versus wheels) can play a role in signalling broader (global) category contrasts in older infants. Rakison and Butterworth (1998) examined categorization of toy objects by 14–22-month-old infants, using the sequential touching procedure, and found that the infants would categorically differentiate between animals and vehicles. However, in a subsequent experiment, when the legs were removed from the animals and the wheels from the vehicles, the infants no longer showed the category 41 42 COGNITIVE AND LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT IN CHILDREN differentiation.
This is a very different sort of process from straightforward perception. This ‘dual-process’ model proposes that both perceptual schemas and image schemas (which are different systems of representation for perception and the formation of concepts respectively) operate in parallel. This dual process then leads to the formation of true concepts that are much more suffused with meaning than perceptual schemas. The concept of ‘representational re-description’ of Karmiloff-Smith (1986) outlined in Box 3, describes a similar, related developmental process whereby children’s knowledge moves from being implicit and procedural to being explicit and potentially ‘thought about’ and ‘talked about’.
