Adult Perception of Emotion Intensity in Human Infant Cries: Effects of Infant Age and Cry Acoustics.
Leger, Daniel W.; And Others
Child Development, v67 n6 p3238-49 Dec 1996
Parents, and adults inexperienced in child care rated intensities of infants' cries. The groups did not differ in their ratings. The cries of 6-month olds were rated more intense than 1-month olds. Amplitude and noisiness of cry predicted adult judgments of 1-year olds' cries. A measure of amplitude ratio predicted ratings of 6-month olds' cries. (BC)
