The development of visual object recognition in school-age children.

Dev Neuropsychol 2007 ;31(1):79-102

Department of Child Neurology and Psychiatry, IRCCS C Mondino Institute of Neurology, University of Pavia, Pavia, Italy.

This study documents the age-dependent development of visual object recognition abilities in 115 children aged 6 to 11 years, using a battery of neuropsychological tests based on Marrs model (Efron test, Warringtons Figure-Ground Test, Street Completion Test, Poppelreuter-Ghent Test, a selection of stimuli from the Birmingham Object Recognition Battery, a series of color photographs of objects presented from unusual perspectives or illuminated in unusual ways). The results suggest a maturation of complex visual perceptual abilities, possibly related to the development of the cerebral processes involved in object recognition, and could be the starting point for future investigations of these skills in impaired populations.
