Newell, Karl M.; Sprague, Robert L.; Pain, Matthew T.; Deutsch, Katherine M.; Meinhold, Patricia
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v104 n1 p11-21 Jan 1999
Self-injurious behavior was examined in a case study of head-banging by an 8-year-old girl with profound mental retardation and an autistic disorder. Trajectories of arm movements and impact forces were determined from dynamic analysis of videotapes. Cycle-to-cycle consistency in the qualitative dynamics of the limb motions and impact forces approaching boxing blows and karate hits were observed. (Author/DB)
