Infant Bouncing: The Assembly and Tuning of Action Systems.
Goldfield, Eugene C.; And Others
Child Development, v64 n4 p1128-42 Aug 1993
A theory of infant skill acquisition was supported by observations, over a six-week period, of the bouncing activity of eight infants while they were supported in a harness assembly. Observed three stages of activity: an initial assembly stage, when movement was irregular and variable in period; a tuning phase of more periodic movement; a final phase of sustained bouncing. (MDM)
