The Role of the Object Concept in Visual Tracking: Child-Like Errors in Adults.
Chromiak, Walter; Weisberg, Robert W.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v32 n3 p531-43 Dec 1981
Adults' ability to track a moving target was examined in two experiments in order to compare their performance with that of very young infants. Results indicated that (1) adults'"overshoot" errors resembled those reported for young infants; and (2) adults had problems tracking a moving target which unexpectedly changed direction. (Author/DB)
