Recent evidence from both altricial and precocial neonates suggests that premature stimulation of a later developing sensory system may alter the functioning of earlier developing sensory systems. The present study examined the influence of prenatal visual stimulation on postnatal auditory functioning in precocial bobwhite quail chicks. Hatchlings that experienced patterned light during the 24-36 hr prior to hatching did not exhibit a naive auditory preference for their species-specific… CONTINUE READING
