What goes on inside your baby’s head may scare you

According to researchers at Yale University’s Infant Cognition Center, also known as “The Baby Lab,” babies can actually tell good from evil, even as young as 3 months old. That research is the focus of a three-part series this week on “Anderson Cooper 360,”which airs weeknights at 8 p.m. ET.

Puppets are used to demonstrate good and bad behavior. In one case, a puppet is struggling to open a box. Another puppet, the “good” puppet, helps it open the box, while another, the “bad” puppet, slams the box shut.

More than 80% of the times that experiment is conducted, babies will select the “good” puppet when presented with both puppets and given the chance to choose either one.
