Acoustic Stimulus Duration in Relation to Behavioral Responses of Newborn Infants Behavioral responses of 160 newborn infants to short duration (50–1000 msec) narrow-band noise stimuli were studied. The proportion of responses obtained, particularly of the whole-body type, increased as a function of duration. Interrupted stimuli (trains of 10 50-msec pulses) proved to be much less effective than continuous stimuli of the ... Research Article

Behavioral responses of 160 newborn infants to short duration (50–1000 msec) narrow-band noise stimuli were studied. The proportion of responses obtained, particularly of the whole-body type, increased as a function of duration. Interrupted stimuli (trains of 10 50-msec pulses) proved to be much less effective than continuous stimuli of the same duration.
