The Cues that Infants Use To Distinguish Discontinuous Quantities: Evidence Using a Shift-Rate Recovery Paradigm.
Tan, Lynne S. C.; Bryant, Peter
Child Development, v71 n5 p1162-78 Sep-Oct 2000
Used shift-rate recovery method in three experiments to examine extent to which 6-month-olds find perceptual cues such as density and length useful in discrimination of linearly arranged sets of large numbers of objects. Found that infants can discriminate between large number sets by relying on absolute cues such as density and on relative cues such as optical one-to-one correspondence. (Author/KB)
