Zusammenfassung: 
Human development takes place at the interface between biology and culture. Therefore the study of development requires consideration of the respective eco-cultural framework. However, research in different eco-cultural contexts poses high demands on the research methods. The present review illustrates these methodological challenges on the basis of empirical examples from cross-cultural infancy research concerning the development of learning and memory. The examples refer to the habituation paradigm, the mobile conjugate reinforcement task, and the A-not-B task. Possible solutions are proposed and research strategies discussed.
