Fast Comprehension of Geometrical Rules in Human Adults and Preschoolers

Abstract : In adults, preschoolers and uneducated Munduruku Indians, we assess the comprehension of geometrical spatial sequences built on primitives - symmetry and rotation - and hierarchically organised algebraic rules, and we propose a theory, consistent with the data, in which human encodes sequences in the form of rules with minimal description length.
