Studied the accuracy with which 48 Ss (mean ages = 5.5, 7.4, 9.5, and 20.5 yrs) could encode cues commonly found in social interactions (e.g., facial expression, vocal intonation, and movements). Data suggest that younger Ss perceived many everyday social interactions as essentially identical and responded accordingly. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
