Now I see it but you don't: 14‐month‐olds can represent another person's visual perspective (pages 199-204)

Abstract

Twelve‐ and 14‐month‐old infants’ ability to represent another person's visual perspective (Level‐1 visual perspective taking) was studied in a looking‐time paradigm. Fourteen‐month‐olds looked longer at a person reaching for and grasping a new object when the old goal‐object was visible than when it was invisible to the person (but visible to the infant). These findings are consistent with the interpretation that infants ‘rationalized’ the person's reach for a new object when the old goal‐object was out of sight. Twelve‐month‐olds did not distinguish between test conditions. The present findings are consistent with recent research on infants’ developing understanding of seeing.
