  1. ncbi Infants' enumeration of actions: numerical discrimination and its signature limits
    Justin N Wood
    Laboratory for Development Studies, Department of Psychology, Harvard University, 33 Kirkland Street, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    Dev Sci 8:173-81. 2005
    ..All of these findings agree with those of studies using visual-spatial arrays and auditory sequences, providing evidence that a single, abstract system of number representation is present and functional in infancy...
  2. ncbi Free-ranging rhesus monkeys spontaneously individuate and enumerate small numbers of non-solid portions
    Justin N Wood
    Department of Psychology, Harvard University, 33 Kirkland Street, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    Cognition 106:207-21. 2008
    ..We discuss our results with respect to theories of visual processing, as well as to the role that the human language faculty may have played in both the evolution and development of quantification...
  3. doi Visual memory for agents and their actions
    Justin N Wood
    Harvard University, Department of Psychology, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA

    Justin N Wood
    Harvard University, Department of Psychology, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA

    ..Monkeys' pattern of success and failure supports the hypothesis that motor areas play a functionally significant role in event parsing and action understanding...
  5. pmc Distinct visual working memory systems for view-dependent and view-invariant representation
    Justin N Wood
    Department of Psychology, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, CA, USA
    PLoS ONE 4:e6601. 2009
    ..However, previous studies tested visual working memory for two-dimensional objects only. In consequence, the nature of visual working memory for three-dimensional (3D) object representation remains unknown...
  6. pmc Chronometric studies of numerical cognition in five-month-old infants
    Justin N Wood
    Laboratory for Developmental Studies, Department of Psychology, Harvard University, 33 Kirkland Street, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA

    Justin N Wood
    Department of Psychology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    Science 317:1402-5. 2007
    ..These findings rule out simple associative accounts of action perception and show that our capacity to infer rational, goal-directed action likely arose at least as far back as the New World monkeys, some 40 million years ago...

    Justin N Wood
    Harvard University, Department of Psychology, Cmabridge, MA 02138, USA
    J Exp Psychol Gen 136:639-52. 2007

    Psychon Bull Rev 20:1246-52. 2013
