Research Studies at University of Waterloo
Synaesthesia
Blending of sensory perception
Digit-colour: when someone sees a number, there is a particular colour that is projected at same
time
Congruent: number and background are very similar in colour
Incongruent: number and background are contrasting and it is easier to recognize number

Infants do understand object permanence earlier than 8 months
Occurs in two week intervals
2.5 months: if it is behind something, you don’t see it
2.5-3 months: learn about seeing things in gaps
3-3.5 months: learn about heights
