Auditory Frequency Sensitivity in the Neonate: A Signal Detection Analysis
Weir, C.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 21, 2, 219-225, Apr 76
Using signal detectability theory, analysis was performed on auditory frequency sensitivity data obtained by Hutt et al, 1968, on human neonates. Reanalysis using 12 male infants confirms superiority of lower frequencies and square waves in provoking startles in neonates. No state of arousal effects were found on sensitivity. (JH)
