A study involving Newcastle researchers has shown that young children ignore background colours when looking at pictures.
A newly published study has shown that when looking at pictures young children seem to ignore colours when they are in the background of a scene. The study involved Jenny Read, professor of vision science. If you ask them to point to something blue for instance they will have no problem if there is a blue object in the picture. However if the only blue in the picture was the sky they would not be able to complete the task.
