The development of inhibition of return was examined in 3-6-month-olds using varied stimulus onset asynchronies. The 300. ms SOA condition revealed particularly interesting findings as it elicited facilitation in 4.5-month-olds, but inhibition in 6-month-olds. Implications for understanding the development of IOR are discussed.
