Discusses lines of research on children's perception and discrimination of spatial characteristics of objects. Definitions of objects, visual perception of spatial features during infancy, problems raised by visuo-manual integration, and the multiple functions of the hand are considered. The importance of a multimodal approach to the study of objects' spatial properties is emphasized. (English abstract) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
