Infant recognition memory, defined by novelty preferences, was found to vary over 4 discrimination tasks as a function of length of familiarization for 5-6-month-old infants. Briefer amounts of familiarization were effective for eliciting recognition than had previously been demonstrated. Order of task difficulty corresponded to age-related differences in ease of discrimination.
