Parault, Susan J.; Schwanenflugel, Paula J.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v75 n4 p245-62 Apr 2000
Examined the development of children's conceptual understanding of attention by focusing on their awareness of various subtypes of attention. Found three changes with increasing age: (1) less emphasis placed on surface features of scenarios used in similarity judgments; (2) more attentional subtypes identified; and (3) more emphasis placed on the role of effort in attention.
