Non-Contingent Stimulation: Effects of Stimulus Movement On Infants' Visual and Motor Behavior
Journal / Book Title
Perceptual and motor skills
The present study was an initial attempt to investigate the effects of non-contingent periodic and aperiodic stimulation on the sensory-motor behavior of 10-wk.-old infants. Results indicated that visual stimulation presented aperiodically (on a random schedule) in contrast to the same stimulation presented periodically (on a fixed time schedule) produced decreased motor activity, heightened visual attention, and a greater number of smiles.
