The Development of Exogenous Orienting: Mechanisms of Control.
Wainwright, Ann; Bryson, Susan E.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v82 n2 p141-55 Jun 2002
Examined which of the attentional operations underlying exogenous orienting (disengaging, shifting, and/or engaging) improves with age in children from 6 to 14 years old. Found that disengaging attention alone distinguished between younger and older children's performance, regardless of whether attention alone or attention and associated sensory and motor systems were involved. Found that even younger children could use the predictability of a cue to enhance their performance. (JPB)
