Malnutrition and Mother-Infant Asynchrony: Slow Mental Development.
Ferreira, Maria Clotilde Rossetti
International Journal of Behavioral Development, v1 n3 p207-19 Jul 1978
Suggests an explanation for the link between environment, malnutrition, and rate of mental development in children. It is argued that biological factors and difficult socioeconomic conditions interact to slow mental development by undermining the establishment and maintenance of a "syntonic,""synchronic," and "reciprocal" relationship between the child and the mother.
