A head-mounted camera was used for studying infant focus of attention. In two situations, 10- and 14-month-old infants observed two adults interacting. In one situation, the adults had a conversation and in the other situation, they were playing with blocks. The results indicate a preference for observing manual actions and a different pattern in looking at(More)
A head-mounted camera was used to measure head direction. The camera was mounted to the forehead of 20 6-and 20 12-month-old infants while they watched an object held at 11 horizontal (À80 to þ 80) and 9 vertical (À48 to þ 50) positions. The results showed that the head always moved less than required to be on target. Below 30 in the horizontal dimension,(More)
Human actions are often embedded in contexts of social interactions.

In this study, 10- and 18-month-old infants were shown three interactive manual actions which the infants could or could not perform(More)
The study explored 6-month-old infants' ability to follow a pointing gesture in a dynamic social context. The infants were presented with a video of a model pointing to one of two toys. The pointing gesture was performed either normally (with arm and hand pointing at the same direction), with a stick, or the model's arm and hand pointing in different(More)
