Aprevious study, designed to account for the phenomenon of identificatio n in terms of incidental learning, demonstrated that children readily imitated behavior exhibited by an adult model in the presence of the model (Bandura & Huston, 1961). A series of experiments by Blake (1958) and others (Grosser, Polansky, & Lippitt, 1951; Rosenblith, 1959; Schachter & Hall, 1952) have likewise shown that mere observation of responses of a model has a facilitating effect on subjects' reactions in the… Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that young children are selective copiers, reproducing the irrelevant tool actions most frequently after having viewed the high-status models, and that this bias toward rank-ordered copying is likely to be a strategy favored by natural selection. Expand
Infant Imitation of Peer and Adult Models: Evidence for a Peer Model Advantage
The imitation behavior of 30 infants, ages 14 to 18 months, were studied using both peer and adult models in an elicited imitation paradigm. Infants watched either a peer or an adult model performExpand
VICARIOUS REINFORCEMENT AND IMITATIVE LEARNING.
TLDR
Results from the Kruskal-Wallis analysis of variance indicated that imitation was significantly influenced by response-consequences to the model (rewarded versus punished p), and additional research should be implemented in which the difference between performance and learning can be better assessed.

THE EFFECTS OF INSTRUCTIONS AND SCHEDULES ON IMITATION
The usefulness of imitation or "observational learning" in common child rearing practices and everyday learning situations is recognized. However, isolation of the variables effecting imitation willExpand
INFLUENCE OF MODEL'S REINFORCEMENT CONTINGENCIES ON THE ACQUISITION OF IMITATIVE RESPONSES.

TLDR
The introduction of positive incentives completely wiped out the previously observed performance differences, revealing an equivalent amount of learning among children in the model-rewarded, model-punished, and the no-consequences conditions. Expand
