Abstract

Six-month-old infants (N = 43) showed differences in the frequency of neutral/positive vocalizations produced when exposed to a standard (parent gazes at infant) versus modified still-face condition (parent gazes above infant). No significant differences in smiling, social gaze, negative affect, and fuss/cry vocalizations were observed.
