Only Tongue Protrusion Modeling Is Matched by Neonates.
Anisfeld, Moshe
Developmental Review, v16 n2 p149-61 Jun 1996
Examines nine studies claiming to have demonstrated facial imitation in the neonatal period. Finds that the claims of early imitative abilities are not well founded: because the matching behavior found is restricted to a single gesture--tongue protrusion--it is best explained as a specific, directly elicited response, rather than imitation.
