Operant Learning of Visual Pattern Discrimination in Young Infants
McKenzie, Beryl; Day, R. H.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 11, 1, 45-53, Feb 71
An operant conditioning technique was used to study visual discrimination of simple patterns by infants aged 6-12 weeks. The appropriate direction of head turning to the patterns was developed and maintained by social reinforcement. Results showed that visual discriminative control of the direction of head turning can be achieved. (WY)
