Visual Tracking and Existence Constancy in 5-Month-Old Infants
Goldberg, Susan
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 22, 3, 478-491, Dec 76
In an attempt to assess the status of the object concept, visual fixation and cardiac deceleration were recorded for 36 infants, 20-24 weeks old, during three kinds of events in which objects moving on a linear trajectory were temporarily occluded by a screen: (1) a familiar object appeared on both sides of the screen; (2) a novel object appeared on both sides of the screen; and (3) a novel object appeared to change to a familiar one behind the screen.
