I have recently read an article in which it is stated, that the researchers can discriminate if a baby knows an object, by looking at the length of time the baby looks at the object. Do adults also tend to look longer to novel stimuli?

    $\begingroup$ I will say that, while the habituation technique, which relies on this fact, is commonly used for babies, but I've never heard of an adult study using it. Take from that what you will. $\endgroup$ – Russell Richie Feb 4 '16 at 7:31
