Children's Perception of Faces of Varied Immaturity.
Gross, Thomas F.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v66 n1 p42-63 Jul 1997
Had college students rate faces (varied on four features) for youthfulness, then had children of increasing ages rate them for cuteness, helplessness, and youthfulness. Found that children, like college students, evaluated youthfulness based on immature features, although older children were more consistent and were more sensitive to eye position when rating for youthfulness and helplessness than were younger children.
