In visual search tasks with adults, the presence of a feature is detected more rapidly than its absence. In two experiments, we asked if perceptual asymmetry affects the detection of effective retrieval cues. Three-month-olds learned to kick to move a mobile displaying either Rs (feature present) or Ps (feature absent), and these same stimuli were used later as retrieval cues during a long-term retention test. In Experiment 1, infants were tested after 24 hrs with a single P amidst six Rs or… CONTINUE READING
