I have a long time friend who, as part of her pre and post doctoral work did some fascinating research on questions concerning how babies perceive and learn. The tests that she and others came up to check on many commonly held hypotheses were/are really creative. Asking babies directly doesn't work, but sometimes there are ways of getting them to tell you what you want to know .
