Title

Stimulus salience and relational task performance

Abstract

Previous research has inferred relational processing from infants' increased attention to stimuli containing different elements following habituation to a series of stimuli containing identical elements. This finding was replicated, but infants were also found to prefer the different-element stimuli without prior habituation. Infants' performance on this task may be attributed to stimulus salience rather than relational processing.
