Spatiotemporal adaptation

Nervous system maturation



Dependent on active involvement of the infant with the environment


Higher level responses result from integration of lower level function

Spiralling Continuum

Four important principles: Adaptation process with new experiences is dependent on past experiences. When new and past experiences are integrated, past behaviours are modified and result in higher level behaviour. Integration of higher level behaviours influence and increase maturity of lower level behaviours. Spatiotemporal stress allows lower level behaviours to emerge during adaptation.

Perceptual Development

Somatosensory Perception

  Myelinate before the visual system. Input from these systems assist in the formation of spatial maps/schema for providing: - Information about space and form perception, spatial relationships of body in space. - Basis for developing body awareness (e.g. Vestibular system also has large input in this area).
