Paper Highlights

  • We investigated infants' sensitivity to social cues (particularly triadic gaze) in triadic engagement.
  • Infants were asked to make an interesting event occur (turn on a light) when an adult interaction partner looked at the location of the event.
  • Nine months old infants did so regardless of eye contact with the adult, 12-month-olds only when triadic gaze between infant, object and adult was not perturbed.
