[xmca] perception

Vygotsky reports on several occasions (eg LSV CW v. 5 pp 86-87) on an experiment in which children are shown a painting and then asked to describe it, but then in a variation on the experiment, are asked to act out what they see in the painting. Version 1 tests the child's ability bring their perception into conscious awareness and then translate it into words and deliver a series of words one after the other, in answer to a question from a stranger and version 2 tests their perception of the painting more or less viscerally.

Can anyone tell me if these results still sand or have there been more recent experiments perhaps producing some different result?
