The current study investigates how human infants process and interpret human movement. Neural correlates to the perception of biological motion by 8-month-old infants were assessed. Analysis of event-related potentials (ERPs) resulting from the passive viewing of upright and inverted point-light displays (PLDs) depicting human movement indicated a larger positive amplitude in right parietal regions between 200 and 300 ms for observing upright PLDs when compared with observing inverted PLDs. These results show that infants at 8 months of age process upright and inverted PLDs differently from each other. The implications for our understanding of infant visual perception are discussed.
