The characteristics of rhythmical kicking movements of preterm infants with documented brain damage (BD), who later showed a severe motor impairment, are described and compared with those of low-risk (LR) preterm infants. Spontaneous movements were videotaped for 60 min in the incubator or in a warmer. A first group of 6 BD and 6 LR infants was observed at(More)

The present study investigates effects of different types of instructions (high-rate, interval, and minimal) during training with a fixed-interval schedule as a function of prior acquired temporal knowledge. A pretest was used to assess 4 1/2- and 6-year-old children's ability to understand the temporal parameters of a fixed-interval schedule of(More)
