Fetal Learning: A Critical Review
James, David K.
Infant and Child Development, v19 n1 p45-54 Jan-Feb 2010
Learning is defined as a change in behaviour that occurs as a result of experience. It is clear that the fetus can learn by means of habituation, classical conditioning and exposure learning. These types of learning will be discussed in relation to learning in the womb and the memory of learned material after birth. Furthermore, the potential function of learning prenatally is explored in terms of its relevance for perinatal development. (Contains 1 table.)
