Increasing Specificity in Perceptual Development: Infants' Detection of Nested Levels of Multimodal Stimulation.
Bahrick, Lorraine E.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v79 n3 p253-70 Jul 2001
Assessed development of infants' sensitivity to two nested amodal temporal relations in audible and visible events. Found that sensitivity to synchrony was present by 4 weeks, remaining stable across age. Sensitivity to composition emerged by 7 weeks, increasing dramatically with age. Noted pattern of increasing specificity in perception development, whereby infants first detect global and later detect embedded relations. (Author/KB)
