Abstract:

The perceptual behavior of 8-, 9-, and 10-week-old infants as a function of different stimulus forms, individuality, and activation level was observed by means of a time-sampling rating method. The proportion of variance accounted for by differences between stimuli is found to increase with age at the same time the effect of autonomic activation processes is decreasing. At 10 weeks but not at 8 weeks of age, circular forms elicit a relaxed approaching tendency, in contrast to a tense aversion, which is elicited by irregularly-shaped forms. Author
