Intermodal transfer in object's shape between vision and touch in 2-month-old infants / Equivalences intermodales de la forme des objets entre la vision et le toucher chez les bebes de 2 mois

Studied intermodal transfer between vision and touch in 2-mo-old infants, using an intermodal matching test. Human subjects: 36 male and female French infants (aged 2 mo to 3 mo 2 days). Ss were either shown an object on a screen with a shape similar to or different from an object that they could touch (experimental group) or a visual or tactual object alone (control group). Duration of exploration of visual and/or tactual objects, and avoidance and other behavioral reactions on introduction of the objects were observed. Differences in types of reactions that occurred with unimodal and bimodal situations were analyzed. (English abstract) Developmental. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
