Length of Delay Piaget's (1962) classic observation of Jacqueline's deferred imitation (of a temper tantrum) occurred after a delay of more than 12 hours. Because the original perceptual input had long since disappeared, Piaget was convinced that this response was no longer a simple sensory-motor coordination, but that some representative element was involved.

Deferred Imitation of Novel Acts If imitation after a delay in the pre-18-month-old age range were restricted to highly familiar behaviors and well-practiced routines, it would limit the inference that could be drawn. It would suggest that pre-18-month-old infants can recognize which of their own behaviors should be applied to particular objects, but that observational learning alone is not an avenue for acquiring new behavior. Several experiments have addressed these issues and have found no such limitations.
