Longitudinal Relationships between Habituation and Temperament in Infancy.
Smith, P. Hull; And Others
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v43 n2 p291-304 Apr 1997
Examined predictive validity of measures of infant habituation and later aspects of temperament. Found babies who habituated sooner (fewer trials to criterion) at five months of age and had fewer peak fixations during habituation were rated by mothers as more active, intense, and negative in mood, and less persistent and adaptable. Age differences were also found in temperament measures. (EV)
