Posture as a Determinant of Visual Behavior in Newborns
Fredrickson, W. Timm; Brown, Josephine V.
Child Development, 46, 2, 579-582, Jun 75
The effects of posture on the visual behavior of 15 3-day-old healthy, black, newborn infants were assessed. Findings suggest that the vestibular, proprioceptive, and contact stimulation provided by the on-shoulder position affects the newborn's ability to follow and process visual stimuli. (Author/CS)
