Mirror self recognition: Cameroonian girl 19 months of age:
three clips


Clip 1:
the girl sees a „playmate“ in the mirror and talks to her - she also does some contingency testing: does the person in the mirror do the same than me?

 

 

Clip 2: the girl looks behind the mirror to see where the other is - there is again some contingency testing

 

 

Clip 3: the girl offers the „playmate“ some keys - repeatedly. The behavior of the girl shows playmate behavior and some experimenting (contingency testing), but no sign of mirror self recognition.
