Object Individuation: Infants' Use of Shape, Size, Pattern, and Color.
Wilcox, Teresa
Cognition, v72 n2 p125-66 Sep 30 1999
Four experiments examined the perceptual features used by 4.5- to 11.5-month olds to individuate objects involved in occlusion events. Results indicated that 4.5-month olds used shape and size features to individuate objects in occlusion events. By 7.5 months, infants used pattern, and by 11.5 months, they used color to reason about object identity. (Author/KB)
