Visual scanning patterns of 6-13-week-old infants are derived from some 50 half-minute assessments in which the infants viewed static geometric figures. Measures include fixation dwell-times, saccade lengths, and the choices and sequences of saccadic targets. From the patterns of change across 3 age periods, it appears that as infants grow older an initial(More)
The characteristics of visual scanning over the 2- to 14-week age period were examined through repeated assessments conducted on a sample of 10 infants. Scanning patterns were measured using a bright-pupil corneal reflex system, and the stimuli consisted of various sets of static, moving, or flickering geometric figures. There appear to be a number of(More)
To clarify the basis for infant differences in rate of visual encoding, the eye movements of a sample of 9 12-week-old infants were recorded throughout an encoding experiment. Results showed that the more slowly encoding infants scanned less extensively over the stimulus, often spent extended intervals in the continuous inspection of one part of the figure,(More)
The visual scanning characteristics of 10 infants were assessed repeatedly over the 2- to 14-week age period, using a bright-pupil/corneal reflection technique. The present report focuses on the calibration process--a procedure by which stimulus figures are mapped onto the raw scanning data. It is concluded that the major calibration parameters vary(More)
The study seeks to illuminate the mechanisms that mediate avoidant reactions in young humans. 40 babies repeatedly were observed throughout their second year in a variety of mildly challenging situations, and then again in a series of follow-up assessments at age 3 1/2. Analysis of the covariance patterns among the repeated measurements supports positing 2(More)
