"Young infants can understand what is boring and interesting for them"
A new study has found that young infants upto seven months are able to distinguish what is too complex or boring, which will make them to focus on only what they can do.
The study which was published in the open-access journal PLoS ONE from author Celeste Kidd from the University of Rochester.
In their study, Kidd and her team monitored the attention patterns of 72 babies, aged seven to eight months, using an eye-tracking device just below a computer screen. As long as the babies stared at the screen, the events being played out continued; but as soon as they looked away, suggesting no more interest.
