The Development of Visual Search in Infants and Very Young Children.
Gerhardstein, Peter; Rovee-Collier, Carolyn
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v81 n2 p194-215 Feb 2002
Trained 1- to 3-year-olds to touch a video screen displaying a unique target and appearing among varying numbers of distracters; correct responses triggered a sound and four animated objects on the screen. Found that children's reaction time patterns resembled those from adults in corresponding search tasks, suggesting that basic perceptual processes underlying visual search are qualitatively invariant over ontogeny.
