Can Newborns Discriminate between Their Own Cry and the Cry of Another Newborn Infant?
Dondi, Marco; Simion, Francesca; Caltran, Giovanna
Developmental Psychology, v35 n2 p418-26 Mar 1999
Two experiments tested whether newborns could discriminate their own and another newborn's cry. Results indicated that awake newborns expressed facial distress more frequently and longer to another newborn's cry than to their own. Sucking decreased significantly between pretest phase and first minute of another infant's cry. Asleep infants' responses were delayed and less intense, but showed a similar trend. (Author/KB)
