Contingency Learning in 9-Month-Old Infants with Down Syndrome.
Ohr, Phyllis S.; Fagen, Jeffrey W.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v99 n1 p74-84 Jul 1994
The ability of 10 9-month-old infants with Down's syndrome to acquire a simple contingency was assessed. Unlike a group of nondisabled infants, the Down's syndrome infants did not, in general, learn the contingency. Results are related to the possibility of a decline in conditionability with age and a relationship between conditionability and mental development. (Author/DB)
