Symons, Douglas K.; and Moran, Greg
Child Development, v58 n6 p1488-95 Dec 1987
The behavioral dynamics of three different types of early mother-infant interactions were examined. Mothers were instructed to play with, imitate, and hold the attention of their infants. Frequency of vocalization, gaze direction, and smiling by both interactants, tactile play by the mother, and crying by the infant were recorded. (PCB)
