We present a neural network model that accounts for an observed asymmetry in the categorization of cats and dogs in 3-4 month old infants. The model establishes a link between infant behaviour and mechanisms of cortical processing. Based on developmental change in the cortex the model predicts behavioural change in infants between 3 and 10 months of age.
