To clarify the basis for infant differences in rate of visual encoding, the eye movements of a sample of 9 12-week-old infants were recorded throughout an encoding experiment. Results showed that the more slowly encoding infants scanned less extensively over the stimulus, often spent extended intervals in the continuous inspection of one part of the figure, and frequently engaged in prolonged fixations. A second experiment provided comparable scanning data from a sample of 9 2-week-old infants. There were significant age differences in the manner of visual scanning, and the scanning style of the more slowly encoding 12-week-old infants proved to be more like that of the younger infants. Possible explanations for both the between-age and within-age differences are proposed.
