The Importance of Eyes: How Infants Interpret Adult Looking Behavior.
Brooks, Rechele; Meltzoff, Andrew N.
Developmental Psychology, v38 n6 p958-66 Nov 2002
Two studies assessed the gaze following of 12-, 14-, and 18-month-olds. Findings indicated that infants at all ages looked at the adult's target more when the adult turned to the target with open eyes than when the adult turned with closed eyes. Additional evidence suggested that infants were not simply responding to adult head turning, but were sensitive to the status of the adult's eyes. (Author/KB)
