Children's Attention to Stimulus Components with Variation in Relative Salience of Components and Degree of Stimulus Integration
Hale, Gordon A.; Green, Roberta Z.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 21, 3, 446-459, Jun 76

Results indicate a greater tendency for older than younger children to withdraw attention from a normally dominant component when advantageous to adopt another feature as the primary functional cue.
