Sound support: intermodal information facilitates infants’ perception of an occluded trajectory
Kirkham, Natasha Z. and Wagner, J.B. and Swan, Kristen A. and Johnson, S.P. (2012) Sound support: intermodal information facilitates infants’ perception of an occluded trajectory. Infant Behavior and Development 35 (1), pp. 174-178. ISSN 0163-6383.
In a visual occlusion task, 4-month-olds were given a dynamic sound cue (following the trajectory of an object), or a static cue (sound remained stationary). Infants’ oculomotor anticipations were greater in the Dynamic condition, suggesting that representations of visual occlusion were supported by auditory information.
