Slater, A. and Johnson, Scott and Brown, E. and Badenoch, M. (1996) Newborn infants' perception of partly occluded objects. Infant Behavior and Development, 19 (1). pp. 145-148.Full text not available from this repository.
Newborn infants were familiarized to a display which contained multiple cues that specified the completeness or coherence of a partly concealed object. However, the findings from test trials suggested that object unity had not been perceived. Possible reasons for the newborn's limitations, and of age changes in perception of object unity, are discussed.
