Infants' Reasoning about Opaque and Transparent Occluders in an Individuation Task.
Wilcox, Teresa; Chapa, Catherine
Cognition, v85 n1 pB1-B10 Aug 2002
This study examined whether 9.5-month-olds could use featural information to individuate objects. Results suggest that infants categorize events involving opaque and transparent occluders as the same kind of situation and that infants are more likely to give evidence of individuation when they need to reason about one kind of event than when they must retrieve and compare distinct events.
