Phenomenal permanence and the development of predictive tracking in infancy

Bennett I. Bertenthal
The perceived spatiotemporal continuity of objects depends on the way they appear and disappear as they move in the spatial layout. This study investigated whether infants' predictive tracking of a briefly occluded object is sensitive to the manner by which the object disappears and reappears.
