Acoustic Characteristics of Naturally Occurring Cries of Infants with "Colic."
Zeskind, Philip Sanford; Barr, Ronald G.
Child Development, v68 n3 p394-403 Jun 1997
Conducted spectrum analysis of standard and vociferous cries from infants with Wessel's colic, non-Wessel's colic, and comparison infants. Vociferous cries had longer duration, higher fundamental frequency, and greater percentage of dysphonation than standard cries. After feedings, problematic criers had greater percentage of dysphonation in vociferous cries than comparison infants, and Wessel's colic infants had higher dominant frequencies than others.
