Human infants were made temporarily monocular with an eye patch. They performed like bginocular infants on the visual cliff at visual depths of 25 centimeters or more. At a visual depth of 12.7 centimeters infants younger than 9 months of age revealed a monocular weakness by turning toward the uncovered eye.
