High-density EEG was used to investigate the cortical processing of a rotatirig visual pattern in 2-, 3-, and 5-month-old infants and in adults. Motion induced ERP in the parietal and the temporal-occipital border regions (OT) was elicited at all ages. The ERP was discernable in the 2-months-olds, significant and unilateral in the 3-month-olds and significantly bilateral in the 5-month-olds and adults. The motion induced ERP in the primary visual area was absent in the 2-month-olds and later than in the OT area for the 3-month-olds indicating that information to OT may be supplied by the VI bypass at these ages. The results are in agreement with behavioural and psychophysical. data in infants.
