Element of surprise – How it affects babies ???

Researches have shown that babies learn better and faster about the world that surrounds them when they face unexpected phenomenon.

New studies at Johns Hopkins University claim that babies learn more effective if they are surprised. Brian Handwerk explains : “Sudden experiences induce the baby’s interest and help the babies find out where to focus their learning skills”.

Amy Style and Lisa Fegenson, co-avtors of the study published in Science, are cognitive psychologists that say – babies are more motivated to learn about the things around them where they are suprised. If new subject is introduced in their environment by surprise they will express bigger interest and want to get to know the subject better.
