Concentrating especially on the neonatal period, 16 contributed chapters each present an aspect of the "organismic givens" interacting with environmental constraints and permissions. Topics include the most important processes and mechanisms of neonatal development: attention, information processing, prenatal experience, arousal, tactile responsibility, audition, orienting behavior, habituation, stimulus localizing, effects of prenatal experience on subsequent development, memory and other roots of cognition, visual sensitivity, intersensory integration, action control and rudimentary imitation, and brain-hemispheric specialization.
