Temperament and sensorimotor intelligence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


In recent years, infant temperament, or behavioral style, has been related to stranger sociability, parental attachment, and a variety of behavioral problems. Similarly, infant cognition has been related to numerous developmental constructs. While a few studies have examined the relationship between infant temperament and sensorimotor intelligence, the results of such efforts have been inconsistent. The present investigation was designed to replicate research that has established negative correlations between cognitive development and infant difficultness, and to test the correspondence between three alternate approaches to assessing temperament in the sensorimotor period within a sample of 30 one-year-olds.
