In human adults two functionally and neuro-anatomically separate systems exist for the use of visual information in perception and the use of visual information to control movements (Milner & Goodale, 1995,2008). We investigated whether this separation is already functioning in the early stages of the development of reaching. To this end we investigated 6- and 7-month-old infants' preferential reaching and control of reaching for identical objects at identical physical distances in front of an illusory Ponzo-like background that made them appear to be located at different distances.
