The early development of attentional selectivity is thought to be strongly influenced by the infant’s sensitivity to salient properties of stimulation such as contrast, movement, intensity, and intersensory redundancy (overlapping information across auditory, visual, tactile and/or proprioceptive stimulation for properties of objects and events). In this chapter, the powerful role of intersensory redundancy in guiding and shaping early selective attention, and, in turn, perception and learning is explored. The recent empirical and theoretical efforts to better understand what guides the allocation of selective attention during early development are reviewed and the implications of early selective attention for perceptual, cognitive, and social development are briefly discussed.
