    György Gergely
    Institute for Psychology, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, 1132 Budapest, Hungary
    Nature 415:755. 2002
    ..Our results indicate that imitation of goal-directed action by preverbal infants is a selective, interpretative process, rather than a simple re-enactment of the means used by a demonstrator, as was previously thought...
  2. ncbi Reapproaching Mahler: new perspectives on normal autism, symbiosis, splitting and libidinal object constancy from cognitive developmental theory
    G Gergely
    Department of Developmental Research at the Institute for Psychology of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest

    György Gergely
    Institute for Psychological Research, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest, Hungary
    Dev Sci 10:139-46. 2007
    ..We end by discussing the far-reaching implications of the pedagogical perspective for a wide range of early social-cognitive competences, and for providing new directions for future research on child development...

    György Gergely
    Department of Developmental Research, Institute for Psychological Research of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, 1394 Budapest, PO Box 398, H 1394, Hungary
    Bull Menninger Clin 67:113-31. 2003

    Ildikó Király
    Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest, Hungary
    Conscious Cogn 12:752-69. 2003

    Judit Futó
    Cognitive Development Center, Central European University, Budapest, Hungary
