Developmental Changes in Infants' and Toddlers' Attention to Gender Categories.
Johnston, Kristen E.; Bittinger, Kathleen; Smith, Amy; Madole, Kelly L.
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v47 n4 p563-84 Oct 2001
Three studies examined the emergence of attention to gender categories in toddlers. Results suggested that 18-month-olds showed little attention to gender on a sequential touching task. The possibility that they could not discriminate the dolls used in the task by gender was ruled out. There was a sharp increase in attention to gender between 18 and 22 months. (KB)
