Sensitization during Visual Habituation Sequences: Procedural Effects and Individual Differences.
Colombo, John; Frick, Janet E.; Gorman, Sheila A.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v67 n2 p223-35 Nov 1997
Examined possibility that arousability as manifested in sensitization contributes to individual differences in infants' attentional profiles. Sensitization tended to occur more frequently with more complex than with less complex checkerboards. Infants showing sensitization looked longer and did not habituate as readily as infants who showed no sensitization. Non-illuminated interstimulus intervals significantly increased looking times to stimuli during trials. (Author)
