Role of Symmetry in the Mirror-Image Confusions of Preschoolers.
Vogel, Juliet M.; Loughlin, Kathleen A.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v70 n6 p894-903 Dec 1978
Preschool children copied peg locations with standardized comparison pegboards aligned horizontally and diagonally and with three levels of pegboard complexity. Error patterns varied with type of alignment and display complexity. Results failed to support Bryant's hypothesis that mirror image confusions are no more frequent than other in-line errors.
