Prematurity Stereotype: Effects of Labeling on Adults' Perceptions of Infants.
Stern, Marilyn; Hildebrandt, Katherine A.
Developmental Psychology, v20 n3 p360-62 May 1984
Two studies were conducted in which college students and mothers were asked to rate unfamiliar infants shown on videotapes. Infants were described as either full-term or premature and as either male or female. Infants labeled premature were rated more negatively than those labeled full-term, but infants labeled male and female were rated similarly. (Author/RH)
