Visual Alertness in Neonates as Evoked by Maternal Care
Korner, Anneliese F.; Thoman, Evelyn B.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 10, 1, 67-78, Aug '70
Forty crying and 24 sleeping 2- to 3-day-old healthy, full-term newborns were given six interventions whichentailed contact and/or vestibular stimulation. Scores obtained on a six-point scale assessing levels of alertness imply that the vestibular stimulation which attends maternal caretaking activities is crucial, at least during the neonatal period.
