This volume is the product of a Symposium on Infant Vision Research held March 7-9, 1991. Kurt Simons organized the symposium under the sponsorship of the Committee on Vision, Commission on Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education of the (U.S.) National Research Council and edited the results for publication. Susan McKee, in the foreword to this volume, explains the origins of the symposium and this proceedings; she chaired the Committee on Vision in 1991.
