Comparative psychologists and cognitive developmentalists often share methods and topics of research. Here we review three domains in which there has been particularly fruitful interaction between the fields and reflect on the theoretical positions behind these interactions. Overall, we conclude that there is much to be gained, as cognitive and behavioural scientists, for drawing together work from human children and non-human species.
