Action Cycles: Rhythmic Actions for Engagement with Children and Young Adults with Profound Mental Handicap.
Burford, Bronwen
European Journal of Special Needs Education, v3 n4 p189-206 Dec 1988
Rhythmic groups of cyclical movements--action cycles--were identified during interactions between adults and subjects (12 children, aged 8-18, and 6 young adults with profound mental handicap). Subjects performed similar actions for apparently similar reasons at similar rates to their caregivers, giving strong indication of a biologically robust system of basic emotional communication.
