The Waxing and Waning of Movement: Implications for Psychological Development.
Eaton, Warren O.; McKeen, Nancy A.; Campbell, Darren W.
Developmental Review, v21 n2 p205-23 Jun 2001
Twelve studies examined implications of age-related changes in movement between 6 weeks and 52 years for various psychological domains. Findings indicate an inverted U-shaped pattern in limb movements per hour that peaked in middle childhood, later than expected. This pattern in motor activity has relevance for development, and for ADHD, educational practice, sex differences, functional immaturity, and arousal regulation. (Author/KB)
