Developmental psychologists study physical, cognitive, and ________ changes throughout the human life span.
Theories of human development have been most susceptible to criticism for overemphasizing
discrete age-linked stages.
During the course of successful prenatal development, a human organism begins as a(n)
zygote and finally develops into a fetus.
A preference for our mother’s voice over our father’s voice has been detected as early as
the day after birth.
Alcohol may cause fetal damage by leaving chemical marks on DNA that switch genes abnormally on or off. This best illustrates
an epigenetic effect.
Infant visual preferences have been discovered by assessing infants’
Maturation refers to
biological growth processes that are relatively uninfluenced by experience.
The concept of maturation is most relevant to understanding the absence of
bladder control among 2-year-olds.
Three-year-olds who experienced a fire evacuation caused by a burning popcorn maker were unable to remember the cause of this vivid event when they were 10-year-olds. This best illustrates
The first time that 4-year-old Sarah saw her older brother play a flute, she thought it was simply a large whistle. Sarah’s initial understanding of the flute best illustrates the process of
Object permanence is the understanding that
things continue to exist even when they are not perceived.
The egocentrism of preschoolers was most strongly emphasized by
Piaget’s cognitive development theory.
According to Piaget, imagining an action and mentally reversing it would be an example of a
Preschoolers’ acquisition of a theory of mind suggests that Piaget overestimated young children’s
Children for whom amniotic fluid analysis indicated high prenatal testosterone develop more

The last stage of prenatal development is the fetal stage, which lasts from two months after conception until birth. About one month into this stage, the sex organs of the fetus begin to form. The fetus quickly grows as bones and muscles form, and it begins to move inside the uterus.
During the course of successful prenatal development a – "Human life begins at fertilization, the process during which a male gamete or sperm unites with a female gamete or oocyte (ovum) to form a single cell called a zygote. This highly specialized, totipotent cell marked the beginning of each of us as a unique individual." "A zygote is the beginning of a new human being (i.e., an embryo)."changes taking place in major periods during the life-span: prenatal, infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age. This would be a journey of personal understanding and self-discovery which should help in your future development. The study of human development would also help you to deal with others better. Introduction not to beThe Case Against Abortion– WHY ABORTION IS WRONG –Medical Testimony: A new human being comes into existence during the process of fertilization. Prenatal Development: Growth in the womb is a rapid process; all systems are in place by week eight. Rights of Personhood: It is unjust and inaccurate to classify certain human beings as "non-persons."
Development: Prenatal Development | SparkNotes – A brief discussion about the 8 Stages Of Human Development. Overview of fetal development It involves tremendous growth – from a single cell to an organism complete with brain and behavioral capabilities the successful achievement of which leads to happiness and success with later tasks while failure leads to unhappiness, socialPrenatal development starts at conception and ends with the birth of your baby. It takes about 40 weeks or nine months to create a new life, and your pregnancy is broken into three, 12-weekWhen the organism is about nine weeks old, the embryo is called a fetus. At this stage, the fetus is about the size of a kidney bean and begins to take on the recognizable form of a human being as the "tail" begins to disappear. From 9-12 weeks, the sex organs begin to differentiate.
