Age-related changes in deferred imitation between 6 and 9 months of age

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Six- and 9-month-old human infants were tested in a deferred imitation paradigm in which an experimenter performed a single action with a novel object. Although infants of both ages imitated the action when tested immediately, only the 9-month-olds exhibited imitation after a 24-h delay. © 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
