Examining in Infancy: Does It Reflect Active Processing?
Oaks, Lisa M.; Tellinghuisen, Donald J.
Developmental Psychology, v30 n5 p748-56 Sep 1994
Two studies examined whether sustained attention during object exploration reflects more active cognitive processing than do other attention components. One study suggested that length of infants' examining is related to the amount of information to be processed. The other showed infants were less distractible during examining, suggesting that examining involved more active processing that other aspects of visual attention. (TM)
