Pre-verbal Infants' Selective Operant Responses for Different Levels of Auditory Complexity and Language Redundancy. Summary.
Wisdom, Sara S.; Friedlander, Bernard Z.
Sixteen 9-18 month normal/superior infants "played" in their home cribs with a two-channel operant "toy" which allowed free choice between alternate audio feedbacks. With more than 300,000 seconds of listening time in the response record, 12 babies successfully discriminated gross differences in auditory complexity, while 10 discriminated fine differences in linguistic redundancy.
