Article
Full-text available
Perceptual color space is continuous; however, we tend to divide it into only a small number of categories. It is unclear whether categorical color perception is obtained solely through the development of the visual system or whether it is affected by language acquisition. To address this issue, we recruited prelinguistic infants (5- to 7-mo-olds)...
Article
Our visual system can easily estimate the constant color and material of external objects despite dynamic changes in the retinal image across viewpoints and illuminations in natural scenes. It is commonly believed that this high-level visual function, called “perceptual constancy,” is acquired through postnatal learning [1 • Sugita Y. Experience i...
Article
Previous study studies have demonstrated 4-month-old infants have color constancy. However, these studies did not control the luminance contrasts precisely. To solve this problem, we presented stimuli in which luminance cues are eliminated, and tested the infant's color constancy more precisely. In the study of color constancy, it is important to e...

Little is known about the time of development of binocular suppression. In the present study, we evaluated the emergence of binocular suppression in infants by using continuous flash suppression (CFS, Tsuchiya and Koch, 2005). In our experiment, one eye of infants was presented with a static face image at one side of the screen, while another eye w...

Sound symbolism, which is the systematic and non-arbitrary link between a word and its meaning, has been suggested to bootstrap language acquisition in infants. However, it is unclear how sound symbolism is processed in the infants’ brain. To address this issue, we investigated the cortical response in 11-month-old infants in relation to sound-symb...

Perceiving and judging food quality is indispensable in daily life. The present study examined this ability’s development in infants during the early postnatal months. We tested if infants aged 5–8 months can discriminate different degree of freshness in cabbage, strawberry, carrot, and spinach. In Experiment 1, images of fresh and degraded vegetab...
Article
Matured visual system extracts invariants from natural images to estimate properties of external objects such as shape and material, meanwhile it discounts information variant with viewpoint and illumination. For instance, we easily judge the glossiness of a surface, but rarely care about the reflected pattern of a scene (lightfield) on the surface...
Article
Full-text available
There is a large literature focused on the color perception of matte surface. However, recent research showed that the component of surface specular reflection, such as glossiness, also affects categorical color perception. For instance, the color term "gold" was used to name high specular stimuli within a specific range of chromaticity, which over...
Article
The current study examined color constancy in infants using a familiarization paradigm. We first obtained isoluminance in each infant as defined by the minimum motion paradigm and used these data to control the luminance of stimuli in the main experiments. In the familiarization phase of the main experiment, two identical smiling face patterns were...
Article
We examined glossiness perception in infants using a preferential looking paradigm. In experiment 1, the images of two doll-shaped objects with matte and glossy surfaces were presented to infants aged 5 to 6 and 7 to 8 months. The results showed that the 7 to 8 month olds, but not the 5 to 6 month olds, looked significantly longer at the glossy obj...

We explored the ability of infants to recognize the smell of daily objects, including strawberries and tomatoes, by using a preferential-looking-technique. Experiment 1 was conducted while strawberries were in season. Thirty-seven infants aged 5- to 8-months were tested with a stimulus composed of a pair of photos of strawberries and tomatoes place...
Article
There have been numerous studies of the Munker-White illusion, but few have focused on the perceptual development of it in human infants. Therefore, this study explores the perceptual development of the Munker-White illusion in infants. In this study, we created two kinds of Munker-White illusion patterns that had different subjective saturation, a...
Article
Although lots of studies about neon color spreading have been reported, few of these studies have focused on the perceptual development of it in human infants. Therefore, this study explores the perceptual development of neon color spreading in infants. In experiment 1, we examined 3-6-month-olds' perception of neon color spreading in static condit...
Article
We explored infants' ability to recognize the canonical colors of daily objects, including two color-specific objects (human face and fruit) and a non-color-specific object (flower), by using a preferential looking technique. A total of 58 infants between 5 and 8 months of age were tested with a stimulus composed of two color pictures of an object...
