Recent data suggest that preverbal infants possess remarkable capacities to process complex events and modify hypotheses about them facing inconsistent evidence.  I will present data about the behavioral and neural correlates of some of these processes in infants and adults, focusing on elementary logical inferences. I will critically discuss various proposals about the mental representations underlying these capacities.
