INFANT is a computational model of Simon's (1997) 'non-numerical' account of the foundations of numerical competence. It operationalizes the memory, individuation, object permanence and spatiotemporal representation competencies of that account into a simulation of the Simon, Hespos & Rochat (1995) study. Results demonstrate that infants' responses can indeed be reproduced without numerical representations.
