Young Infants' Perception of Unity and Form in Occlusion Displays.
Johnson, Scott P.; Bremner, J. Gavin; Slater, Alan M.; Mason, Uschi C.; Foster, Kirsty
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v81 n3 p358-74 Mar 2002
A recognition-based paradigm was used to investigate possibility that past research failed to sensitively assess infants' perception of the unity of misaligned edges in partial occlusion displays. Results suggested that habituation designs tapping recognition processes may be particularly efficacious in revealing infants' perceptual organization. Findings provide corroborative evidence for the importance of motion and orientation in infants' object segregation. (Author/KB)
