I am interested in how children reason about regularities in their world (e.g., stop signs being red, boys having short hair, cats saying meow, mommy drinking coffee).

How do children learn these regularities? What is unique about the acquisition of such information? How does children's reasoning about this information shape their beliefs about the way the world works?

How might reasoning about regularities change across development?
