Behavioural schemata: organized patterns of behaviour that are used to represent and respond to objects and experiences. Psychoanalysis was later rejected by Piaget as he thought it was insufficiently empirical (Mayer 2005).

Piaget created the International Center for Genetic Epistemology in Geneva in 1955 and directed it until his death in 1980.
