The study examined whether screen size (10 degrees vs 19 degrees dia.) and separation (3 degrees vs 10 degrees eccentricity of inner edges) affect the estimates of acuity obtained with 1-3 month infants tested by forced-choice preferential looking. One and 2-month infants (but not 3-month olds) showed higher acuity estimates with the larger screens. Screen separation did not significantly affect acuity estimates for any of the age groups. Possible factors underlying these results are discussed.
