Infants were unable to form category representations of animals or furniture.
Infants were found to form a category representation of chairs that included novel chairs, but excluded couches, beds and tables.
Infants were found to form a category representation of domestic cats that included novel cats, but excluded birds, dogs, horses and tigers.
Infants will prefer instances from novel category B after presentation with exemplars of familar category A, but not prefer instances from novel category A after presentation with exemplars from familiar category B. 3 and 4 month old infants presented wit

Object examination task was used: familiarisation then novel exemplar from familar vs unfamiliar category.
10 month old infants have perceptual similarity as they spent longer when examining an object from a new category.
10 month old infants have perceptual similarity as they spent a short amount of time examining an object from a new category.
10 month old infants have conceptual insight as they spent longer when examining object from a new category.

Infants could recognise objects that they had just been introduced to, compared to objects in their pre-existing knowledge.
They had pre-existing knowledge of object categories they learnt at home.
Infants were unable to recognise object categories even when they were already familar with the objects used.
HOWEVER - these results could have been explained by association instead.
Chimpanzees cannot understand category concepts as they could sort between food and tools.
Chimpanzees cannot understand categories as concepts as they could not sort between tools and food.
Chimpanzees can understand categories as concepts as they could sort between food and tools.
When we encounter a new object we compare it to our prototype: typical exemplars share many features and atypical exemplars share fewer features.
The inability to represent a category due to the reflection of central tendency
The lack of association between many categories
An abstract representation of a category reflecting the central tendency, or 'best example'.
