Eye-Movement Control in Newborns in Darkness and in Unstructured Light.
Haith, Marshall M.; Goodman, Gail S.
Child Development, v53 n4 p974-77 Aug 1982
Infrared television recordings were made of newborns' visual activity under monocular and binocular viewing conditions. Out-of-control eye movements were substantially more frequent in the presence of uniform light fields than in darkness for both groups. A distinction between exogenous and endogenous control of eye movements in newborns is supported. (Author/RH)
