This article describes research on adult physiological and self-report response to audiotapes of infants' cries. 3 groups were studied: nonparents, primiparous parents, and multiparous parents. The tapes consisted of cries ordered (difficult, average, easy) according to sound spectrographic features and infant temperament ratings. While nonparents and(More)
Determined the relationship between behaviour measured with the Brazel zelton Scale and simultaneously recorded cardiorespiratory activity. The Brazelton Scale was administered and videotaped in a sample of 22 term and 22 preterm infants at term conceptional age. The videotapes were coded off line with a computer interface to time lock behavior and(More)
Cardiorespiratory activity was recorded during attentional responsivity on the Brazelton scale in term and preterm infants. Preterm infants showed less heart rate deceleration, less heart rate variance and less power in the ECG spectrum at frequencies associated with respiratory sinus arrhythmia and oscillations in blood pressure: A lower threshold for(More)
Recent research is reviewed which deals with adult perception of variations in specific features of infant appearance. While there is relative consensus as to the general features which compose the "babyishness" ideal type, there is less work examining the representative variation of these specific features as a function of gestational age or infant(More)
