Intersensory Redundancy Guides Attentional Selectivity and Perceptual Learning in Infancy.

Three experiments assessed the intersensory redundancy hypothesis in early infancy. Findings indicated that habituation to a bimodal rhythm resulted in discrimination of a novel rhythm, whereas habituation to the same rhythm presented unimodally resulted in no evidence of discrimination. Temporal synchrony between the bimodal auditory and visual information was necessary for rhythm discrimination. Findings supported an intersensory redundancy hypothesis. (Author/KB)
