Infant Attention and the Development of Smooth Pursuit Tracking.
Richards, John E.; Holley, Felecia B.
Developmental Psychology, v35 n3 p856-67 May 1999
Studied effect of attention on smooth pursuit and saccadic tracking in infants at 8, 14, 20, and 26 weeks old. Found an increase across age in overall tracking, gain of smooth-pursuit eye movements, and increased amplitude of compensatory saccades at faster tracking speeds. Findings show that development of smooth pursuit, targeted saccadic eye movements, and sustained attention are closely related. (Author/KB)
