The Relationship of Novelty Preferences during Infancy to Later Intelligence and Later Recognition Memory.
Fagan, Joseph F., III
Intelligence, v8 n4 p339-46 Dec 1984
Children (n=36), originally tested for visual novelty preferences at age seven months and intelligence estimates at age three, were tested for intellectual functioning and for visual recognition performance at age five. Results indicate that novelty preferences were more highly related to later intelligence quotients than to later recognition performance. (Author/BS)
