I find this series of cognitive experiments with small babies at Yale University quite remarkable.

What they have found is that babies as young as six months can:

  • follow and understand a fictional narrative story
  • make a moral judgment about the motives of the characters in the story

So at an age when they could not have learned these things, we can see that babies are hardwired for both stories and an understanding of right and wrong. Wonder where that came from. Watch the video below and read the story.
