Physiological Self-Regulation and Information Processing in Infancy: Cardiac Vagal Tone and Habituation.
Bornstein, Marc H.; Suess, Patricia E.
Child Development, v71 n2 p273-87 Apr-May 2000
Investigated the role of physiological self-regulation (cardiac vagal tone) in information processing (habituation) in infants. Found that decreases in vagal tone consistently related to habituation efficiency at 2 and 5 months. Within- and between- age suppression of vagal tone predicted accumulated looking time (ALT), but ALT did not predict suppression of vagal tone. (Author/KB)
