Nayak, Madhabika B.; Milner, Joel S.
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v22 n7 p687-703 Jul 1998
A study investigated the performance of high- and low-risk (for child abuse) mothers on cognitive measures in a cry (crying infant) and no-cry condition. High-risk mothers had lower conceptual ability, cognitive flexibility, and problem-solving skills. The difficulty high-risk mothers have in using feedback to modify their behavior is discussed.
