Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A carefully selected sample of 18 3-day-old full term neonates was videotaped in 3 different positions. The time of taping was controlled for feed interval. These tapes were then analysed for state and posture using a frame by frame facility. Seventy one separate postures were documented and the existence of a 'neutral posture' was noted. These postures will provide a baseline for further work in adult-infant interaction.
