Dimensional Strategies Dominate Perceptual Classification.
Thompson, Laura A.
Child Development, v65 n6 p1627-45 Dec 1994
Examined the nature of perceptual classification in children and young adults. Found that most children attend selectively to one stimulus dimension when making perceptual classification judgments. Suggests that this developmental trend does not appear to be a holistic-to-analytic shift but rather a trend toward greater consistency in following a given classification rule when making classification judgments.
