Relationships between vestibular kinesthetic stimulations provided by mother and infant exploratory behavior



Relationships between vestibular kinesthetic stimulations provided by mother and infant exploratory behavior



Psychologica Belgica 22(1): 25-38



Relationships between the frequency of vestibular-kinesthetic stimulations provided by mothers to infants during daily interactions and infants' exploratory behaviors in a strange situation were examined in 18 mother-infant dyads. During 5 consecutive days, 2 h a day, mothers noted all occurrences when they picked up their infant. In the laboratory, a 1st session permitted observation of mother-infant interactions while alone. Thereafter the mother-infant dyad was introduced into a room furnished with novel toys. Infants' behavior was observed. Visual fixation and movement towards the toys or other objects, mouth or hand contact with them, and vocalization measured infants' exploratory behaviors, while visual fixation, movement towards and contact with the mother measured their attachment. Results indicated a relationship between the frequency of vestibular-kinesthetic stimulations recorded by the mother, 4 categories of exploratory behavior and mother and infant vocalizations during the interaction session. These observations are discussed with regard to the effects of specific early experiences on development.
