Better perception of global motion after monocular than after binocular deprivation
We used random-dot kinematograms to compare the effects of early monocular versus early binocular deprivation on the development of the perception of the direction of global motion. Patients had beenExpand

What aspects of face processing are impaired in developmental prosopagnosia?
Developmental prosopagnosia (DP) is a severe impairment in identifying faces that is present from early in life and that occurs despite no apparent brain damage and intact visual and intellectualExpand

Ascorbic acid for the common cold. A prophylactic and therapeutic trial.
Three hundred eleven employees of the National Institutes of Health volunteered to take 1 gm of ascorbic acid or lactose placebo in capsules three times a day for nine months. At the onset of a cold,Expand

Multiple sensitive periods in human visual development: evidence from visually deprived children.
Psychophysical studies of children deprived of early visual experience by dense cataracts indicate that there are multiple sensitive periods during which experience can influence visual development.Expand

Face Perception During Early Infancy
Previous studies of face perception during early infancy are difficult to interpret because of discrepant results and procedural differences. We used a standardized method based on the Teller acuityExpand

Putting order into the development of sensitivity to global motion
We studied differences in the development of sensitivity to first-versus second-order global motion by comparing the motion coherence thresholds of 5-year-olds and adults tested at three speeds (1.5,Expand

Sensitivity to global form in glass patterns after early visual deprivation in humans
To compare the effects of early monocular versus early binocular deprivation on the perception of global form, we assessed sensitivity to global concentric structure in Glass patterns with varyingExpand

Long trajectory for the development of sensitivity to global and biological motion.
We used a staircase procedure to test sensitivity to (1) global motion in random-dot kinematograms moving at 4° and 18° s(-1) and (2) biological motion. Thresholds were defined as (1) the minimumExpand

Development of spatial and temporal vision during childhood
Using the method of limits, we measured the development of spatial and temporal vision beginning at 4 years of age. Participants were adults, and children aged 4, 5, 6, and 7 years (n = 24 per age).Expand

Developmental changes during childhood in single-letter acuity and its crowding by surrounding contours.
Crowding refers to impaired target recognition caused by surrounding contours. We investigated the development of crowding in central vision by comparing single-letter and crowding thresholds inExpand
