Abstract
Learning and retention effects in 3- and 6-month-old infants were analysed for the habituation, the novelty preference, and the visual expectation paradigm that are assumed to indicate processing speed. A total of 119 infants participated in the study. The tasks related to the different paradigms were presented on three different days within a week and were repeated two weeks later to analyse retention effects. The results showed clear learning effects in all paradigms. The learning effects shown for different tasks were interrelated for 6-month-old infants, thus supporting the assumption of a shared latent dimension like processing speed. Moreover, retention effects over an interval of two weeks could be shown for visual expectation (in both 3- and 6-month-old infants) and for novelty preference (only for 6-month-old infants). The comparably high retention rates especially in the visual expectation paradigm are discussed.
