The Role of Object Recognition in Young Infants' Object Segregation.
Carey, Susan; Williams, Travis
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v78 n1 p55-60 Jan 2001
Discusses Needham's findings by asserting that they extend understanding of infant perception by showing that the memory representations infants draw upon have bound together information about shape, color, and pattern. Considers the distinction between two senses of "recognition" and asks in which sense object recognition contributes to object individuation in these experiments. (JPB)
