Motion coherence thresholds in infants--different tasks identify at least two distinct motion systems.

Abstract:

Optokinetic nystagmus (OKN) can be demonstrated from birth, but behavioural discrimination tasks such as habituation and preferential looking do not reveal any sensitivity to motion direction until a few weeks of age. This study compared coherence threshold for motion direction for OKN and preferential looking responses using closely comparable stimuli, in infants between 6 and 27 weeks of age. Infants were tested with two random dot motion displays, a uniform area of moving dots for OKN resp...
