Babies might be more knowledgeable than adults give them credit for. For example, a new study claims that while some babies aren’t able to speak during the early years, that doesn’t mean they aren’t able to think — in fact, they might already have the ability to logically reason at that point.
According to renowned psychologist Jean Piaget, humans don’t develop logical reasoning capabilities until the age of seven, but a team of scientists challenges that theory. They scanned the eyes of 48 babies and concluded that the little ones are capable of reasoning through the process of elimination.
