Blass, Elliott M.; Camp, Carole A.
Developmental Psychology, v37 n6 p762-74 Nov 2001
Calm or crying 9- and 12-week-olds sat facing a researcher who gazed into their eyes or at their forehead and delivered either a sucrose solution or pacifier or delivered nothing. Found that combining sweet taste and eye contact was necessary and sufficient for calm 9- and 12-week-olds to form a preference for the researcher, but not for crying infants. (Author/KB)
