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)
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.

Human actions are often embedded in contexts of social interactions.

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)
