Infants' Ability To Match Dynamic Phonetic and Gender Information in the Face and Voice.
Patterson, Michelle L.; Werker, Janet F.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v81 n1 p93-115 Jan 2002
Tested in six experiments young infants' sensitivity to vowel and gender information in faces and voices. Found that 4.5-month-olds showed no evidence of matching face and voice based on gender, but were able to ignore irrelevant gender information and match based on the vowel. Robust evidence of ability to match based on gender was not evident until 8 months. (Author/KB)
