This chapter deals with the development of visual perception and auditory localization in human infants. It starts with a review of the development of general visual functions, including visual acuity, sensitivity to orientation and motion, and the development of the visual fields. The development of accommodation and eye movements is then discussed, including the development of eye alignment, pursuit eye movements, saccadic eye movements, and vergence. The next three chapters deal with the development of depth perception, binocular vision, and stereoscopic vision. The chapter ends with a review of the development of auditory localization.

Keywords:   visual development, development of depth perception, development of stereopsis, auditory localization
