  • Play in Mexican‐American mothers and toddlers is frequent, multimodal, and rich in symbolic content
    Infancy (IF 2.553) Pub Date : 2020-05-27

    Play offers rich opportunities for toddlers to develop motor, social, cognitive, and language skills, particularly during interactions with adult caregivers who may scaffold toddlers to higher levels of play than toddlers achieve on their own. However, research on play has narrowly focused on children from White, middle‐income backgrounds, leaving a dearth of knowledge about dyadic play in diverse

  • Robust data and power in infant research: A case study of the effect of number of infants and number of trials in visual preference procedures
    Infancy (IF 2.553) Pub Date : 2020-05-07
    Michaela C. DeBolt; Mijke Rhemtulla; Lisa M. Oakes

    As in many areas of science, infant research suffers from low power. The problem is further compounded in infant research because of the difficulty in recruiting and testing large numbers of infant participants. Researchers have been searching for a solution and, as illustrated by this special section, have been focused on getting the most out of infant data. We illustrate one solution by showing how

  • Individual differences in infancy research: Letting the baby stand out from the crowd
    Infancy (IF 2.553) Pub Date : 2020-05-04
    Koraly Pérez‐Edgar; Alicia Vallorani; Kristin A. Buss; Vanessa LoBue

    Within the developmental literature, there is an often unspoken tension between studies that aim to capture broad scale, fairly universal nomothetic traits, and studies that focus on mechanisms and trajectories that are idiographic and bounded to some extent by systematic individual differences. The suitability of these approaches varies as a function of the specific research interests at hand. Although

  • The importance of using multiple outcome measures in infant research
    Infancy (IF 2.553) Pub Date : 2020-04-28

    Collecting data with infants is notoriously difficult. As a result, many of our studies consist of small samples, with only a single measure, in a single age group, at a single time point. With renewed calls for greater academic rigor in data collection practices, using multiple outcome measures in infant research is one way to increase rigor, and, at the same time, enable us to more accurately interpret

  • Maternal knowledge, stimulation, and early childhood development in low‐income families in Colombia
    Infancy (IF 2.553) Pub Date : 2020-04-27
    Jorge Cuartas; Catalina Rey‐Guerra; Dana Charles McCoy; Emily Hanno

    Theoretical models assume that parental knowledge about child development and caregiving motivates parental stimulation, shaping child development. Evidence supporting these models is scarce in low‐ and middle‐income countries (LMICs). This study tests the relations between maternal knowledge, stimulation, and child development in a Colombian sample of 1,277 low‐income mothers and their children under

  • Phonemic contrasts under construction? Evidence from Basque
    Infancy (IF 2.553) Pub Date : 2020-03-03
    Saioa Larraza; Monika Molnar; Arthur G. Samuel

    Attunement theories of speech perception development suggest that native‐language exposure is one of the main factors shaping infants' phonemic discrimination capacity within the second half of their first year. Here, we focus on the role of acoustic–perceptual salience and language‐specific experience by assessing the discrimination of acoustically subtle Basque sibilant contrasts. We used the infant‐controlled

  • Emergence of a consonant bias during the first year of life: New evidence from own‐name recognition
    Infancy (IF 2.553) Pub Date : 2020-04-03
    Katie Von Holzen; Thierry Nazzi

    Recent evidence suggests that during the first year of life, a preference for consonant information during lexical processing (consonant bias) emerges, at least for some languages like French. Our study investigated the factors involved in this emergence as well as the developmental consequences for variation in consonant bias emergence. In a series of experiments, we measured 5‐, 8‐, and 11‐month‐old

  • Visual short‐term memory for overtly attended objects during infancy
    Infancy (IF 2.553) Pub Date : 2020-03-31

    We investigated limitations in young infants’ visual short‐term memory (VSTM). We used a one‐shot change detection task to ask whether 4‐ and 8.5‐month‐old infants (N = 59) automatically encode fixated items in VSTM. Our task included trials that consisted of the following sequence: first a brief (500 ms) presentation with a sample array of two items, next a brief (300 ms) delay period with a blank

  • Maternal input and infants’ response to infant‐directed speech
    Infancy (IF 2.553) Pub Date : 2020-04-20
    Vivien Outters; Melanie S. Schreiner; Tanya Behne; Nivedita Mani

    Caregivers typically use an exaggerated speech register known as infant‐directed speech (IDS) in communication with infants. Infants prefer IDS over adult‐directed speech (ADS) and IDS is functionally relevant in infant‐directed communication. We examined interactions among maternal IDS quality, infants’ preference for IDS over ADS, and the functional relevance of IDS at 6 and 13 months. While 6‐month‐olds

    Infants amass thousands of hours of experience with particular items, each of which is representative of a
