Long-Term Retention in 3.5-Month-Olds: Familiarization Time and Individual Differences in Attentional Style.
Courage, Mary L.; Howe, Mark L.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v79 n3 p271-93 Jul 2001
Examined effect of familiarization on 3.5-month-olds' retention of visual stimuli with varying delay times. Found support for retention models in which direction of attentional preferences (novel, familiar, or null) depends on memory accessibility. Short lookers showed better retention over time than long lookers, indicating that much of the variability in group data could be accounted for by individual differences. (Author/KB)
