Developmental cognitive neuroscience needs constructivist modeling
Continuing this post, here's a good article on how this field really needs a good constructivist developmental model in which to make sense of the findings. My limited research to date shows a lot of neuroscientific study but is sparse on contextualizing it in a developmental scheme. In particular, it looks at the neo-Piagetian models of Demetriou, Case, Pascual-Leone, Halford. Interesting that no mention of Commons or the model of hierarchical complexity. Perhaps it's because these theorists use the neuroscience data while the MHC does not?
