Learning in Premature Infants.
Thoman, Evelyn B.; Ingersoll, Evan W.
Developmental Psychology, v29 n4 p692-700 Jul 1993
Examined instrumental learning in premature infants by providing 45 infants at 33 weeks conceptual age with either a teddy bear that "breathed" quietly at the infant's respiration rate (BB) or a nonbreathing bear (NBB). Over a two-week period, infants provided with the BB decreased their latency to contact the bear; infants exposed to the NBB showed the opposite pattern. (MDM)
