A Baby Needs Sharp Contrasts to See
In the first few months of its life, a baby's brain will lay down its main visual pathways. Different layers in the cortex deal with different signals transmitted from the retina, along the optic nerve to the back of the brain. One layer transmits horizontal lines and another vertical lines. If a baby only saw horizontal lines as the visual pathways were laid down in its brain then it would bang into vertical objects (such as chair legs etc) as it crawled because its brain could not process the vertical lines of these structures.
Therefore, to give the baby the stimulus for its visual pathways to develop, researchers recommend that stark black and white contrasting shapes are more appropriate than bland pastel wall coverings popular in young children's bedrooms.
