Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v78 n3 p291-311 Mar 2001
Examined three possible explanations for findings that infants detect textural discrepancies based on individual features more readily than on feature conjunctions. Found that none of the proposed factors could explain 5.5-month-olds' superior processing of featural over conjunction-based textural discrepancies. Findings suggest that in infancy, as in adulthood, features and conjunction relations appear to be processed by qualitatively different mechanisms. (Author/KB)
