How Infants Perceive a Simple Causal Event.
Cohen, Leslie B.; Oakes, Lisa M.
Developmental Psychology, v29 n3 p421-33 May 1993
Describes 4 experiments examining 10-month-old infants' causal event perception. Results from all experiments indicated that infants perceived causality of simple events by associating a specific agent with a causal action. These results provide more support for an information-processing view of causal perception than for a view that explains infant causal perception in terms of a causal perceptual module. (MM)
