Sensory-motor organizations and development in infancy and early childhood

(from the preface) This book is the outcome of a Nato Workshop, held in France in July 1989. The workshop was organized to examine current ideas about sensory-motor organizations during human infancy and their development through early childhood. . . . The book is divided into five sections, each of which includes overviews, experimental chapters and discussions. New trends, models and approaches are presented and criticized in the first section. Each of the following sections is devoted to a particular issue and deals with neurobehavioral development of motility and visuo-motor coordination (2nd section); development of visual-vestibular interaction and posture; reaching and manual exploration (4th section); locomotion and perception of spatial information (5th section). Lastly, an extension of the field to the study of speech is explored. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
