The Role of Good Form in Young Infants' Perception of Partly Occluded Objects.
Johnson, Scott P.; Bremner, J. Gavin; Slater, Alan M.; Mason, Uschi C.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v76 n1 p1-25 May 2000
Three experiments investigated whether 4-month-olds would attend to and utilize the global configuration ("good form") of a partly occluded, moving object to perceive its unit and coherence behind the occluder. Results indicated that curvature per se provided information in support of completion, in addition to global configuration and motion. Findings pose implications for theories of infants' visual development. (Author/KB)
