The rats reared in darkness apparently saw what the normally reared animals did, a surface to be walked on, on one side, but a dropoff on the other. in a later experiment, kittens were reared in the dark (half of each of several litters) and brought out when the light-reared siblings had opened their eyes and could walk about. The dark-reared kittens initially behaved indiscriminately on the visual cliff, wandering aimlessly about from side to side. The kittens were maintained after this initial experience in the usual lighted laboratory environment and tested again daily on the cliff.

Deformation (an elastic motion) was accomplished by squeezing the object, also cyclical and continuous. In the habituation series of the experiment, an infant was presented with a series of three rigid motions in separate trials; in the dishabituation series, the fourth rigid motion (as yet unseen) and the deformation were presented, each separately. The different rigid motions were counterbalanced over subjects. Rather than present a rigid motion for a set time, an "infant control" procedure was used (Horowitz, Paden, Bhana, & Self, 1972), a procedure that has been found very effective.

Siqueland and DeLucia followed sucking at criterion amplitude with the appearance of a slide exposed to the infant's view on a lighted screen. Slides included geometric patterns, cartoon figures, and human faces, changing every 30 seconds. When the slides were withdrawn, sucking rate and amplitude declined. Simply presenting a group of infants with a changing pattern of slides, not contingent on their sucking, was ineffective. The authors concluded that "visual feedback of the type employed in these experiments was effective in supporting motivated exploratory behavior in infants as young as 3 weeks of age" (1969, p.
