Jankowski, Jeffery J.; Rose, Susan A.; Feldman, Judith F.
Child Development, v72 n2 p339-51 Mar-Apr 2001
Studied in three experiments the distribution and malleability of visual attention in 5-month-olds while they inspected large geometric designs. Established that infants who were short-lookers had novelty scores above chance, whereas long-lookers demonstrated chance responding. Illuminating different parts of visual display induced long-lookers to scan like short-lookers. (Author/KB)
