Images, Words, and Questions: Variables that Influence Beliefs about Vision in Children and Adults.
Winer, Gerald A.; And Others
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v63 n3 p499-525 Dec 1996
Three studies used computer graphics and/or verbal questioning to examine beliefs among children and adults that vision involves input to the eyes (intromission) or emissions from the eye (extramission). Results showed decreases in extramission and increases in intromission beliefs across age. There were more extramission interpretations with graphic images and more intromission interpretations when questioning was purely verbal. (Author/KDFB)
