As we concluded regarding acuity, these limitations of early vision would be expected to affect pickup of fine spatial details. Minute textural variation and subtle gradations of intensity may not be visible to the young infant. Perception of ordinary objects and events in well-​lit environments is not greatly limited by contrast sensitivity. Mechanisms of Development in Contrast Sensitivity and Acuity An elegant means of quantifying early visual capacities, tracking changes, and inferring the mechanisms of developmental change is the ideal observer analysis (Geisler, 1984, 2011), pioneered in the study of infant vision by Banks and colleagues (Banks & Bennett, 1988; Banks & Dannemiller, 1987; Banks, Geisler, & Bennett, 1987; Banks & Shannon, 1993).

THE HUMAN INFANT’S NERVOUS SYSTEM Linking the infant’s physiology to sensory and perceptual functioning is a difficult undertaking. We are limited by what is known about physiology and perhaps even more by our modest knowledge about how structures and events in the nervous system carry out perceptual processing. On the behavioral side, measures of sensory and perceptual function in infants are somewhat blunt instruments.
