Infant Perceptual and Conceptual Categorization: The Roles of Static and Dynamic Stimulus Attributes.
Arterberry, Martha E.; Bornstein, Marc H.
Cognition, v86 n1 p1-24 Nov 2002
Five experiments used a categorization habituation-of-looking paradigm to investigate infants' categorization of animals and vehicles based on static versus dynamic attributes of stimuli (color images versus dynamic point-light displays). Findings showed that 6-month-olds categorize animals and vehicles based on static and dynamic information, and 9-month-olds, but not 6-month-olds, can transfer dynamic category information to static images.
