VISION- ITS DEVELOPMENT IN INFANT AND CHILD by ARNOLD GESELL, M. D. FRANCES L. ILG., M. D. GLENNA E. BULLIS. Assisted by VIVIENNE ILG, O. D. and G. N. GETMAN, O. D. PAUL B. HOEBER, INC. MEDICAL BOOK DEPARTMENT OF HARPER i-BROTHERS. PREFACE: The background, scope, and genesis of the present volume are outlined in an introductory chapter which follows. There is not much more which needs to be said by way of preface. The investigations of the Yale Clinic of Child Development since its founding in 1911 have been mainly concerned with the growth aspects of early human behavior. All told, the behavior characteristics of 34 age levels have been charted, encompassing the first ten years of life. An intensive longitudinal study of a group of five infants in 1927 established methods for a systematic normative survey. These methods included developmental examinations and inventories at lunar month intervals during the first year of life. Concurrent cinema records were analyzed to define significant behavior patterns and growth trends. Special attention was given to the ontogenetic patterning of posture, locomotion, prehension, and manipulation. Cinemanalysis, both of normative and experimental data, demonstrated that the eyes play an important role in the ontogenesis of the total action system of the total child. The nature and the dynamics of that role constitute the subject matter of the present study. The adult human eye has been likened to a camera. This analogy has had some truth and much tradition in its favor. But it has tended to obscure the developmental factors which determine the structure and the organization of the visual functions during infancy and child hood. The development of vision in the individual child is an extremely complex and protracted process for the very good reason that it took countless ages of evolution to bring human vision to its present pre-eminence. Our culture is becoming increasingly eye minded with the advancing perfection and implementation of the organ of sight. What is that organ It is more than a dioptric lens and a retinal film. It embraces enormous areas of the cerebrum it is deeply involved in the autonomic nervous system it is identified reflexively and directly with the skeletal musculature from head and hand to foot. Vision is so pervasively bound up with the past and present performances of the organism that it must be interpreted in terms of a total, unitary, integrated action system. The nature of the integration, in turn, can be understood only through an appreciation of the orderly stages and relativities of development whereby the integration itself is progressively attained. The authors have attempted to achieve a closer acquaintance with the interrelations of the visual system per se and the total action system of the child. This finally entailed the use of the retinoscope and of analytic optornetry at early age levels where these technical procedures ordinarily are not applied. The examinations of the visual functions and of visual skills were really conducted as behavior tests, not only to determine the refractive status of the eyes, but also to determine the reactions of the child as an organism to specific and total test situations. The objective findings have been correlated with the cumulative evidence furnished by the developmental examinations, numerous inter views, and naturalistic observations of the children at home and in a guidance nursery. Although the conclusions of our study are preliminary in character, we may hope that they will contribute to a better understanding of the child in terms of vision and a better understanding of vision in terms of the child. The two should not be sundered. With increased knowledge it is possible that the visual behavior of the individual child will become an acute index for the appraisal of fundamental constitutional traits
Infant behavior; its genesis and growth by Arnold Gesell( Book )

38 editions published between 1934 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This publication is based upon periodic developmental examinations of normative infants throughout the first year of life. The volume deals mainly with findings and genetic interpretations derived from naturalistic observation. The results of the normative survey are reported in six chapters and sixty sections. Chapter Three, which constitutes the core of the book, summarizes the behavior characteristics displayed in twenty-five different situations, instituted at fifteen age levels from four through fifty-six weeks. The newborn infant was not included in our systematic observations. We have not, however, been unmindful of the importance of the neonatal period and (in Chapter Four) have indicated its genetic relations to the fetal and later postnatal period. The book focuses on these basic categories: Postural Behavior; Locomotion; Perceptual Behavior; Prehension; Adaptive Behavior; Language Behavior; and Social Behavior"--Chapter.

Infancy and human growth by Arnold Gesell( Book )

28 editions published between 1928 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Growth is a word to conjure with. There is always some danger that the term will be used in a mystical or vitalistic manner which will defeat its scientific usefulness, but we may at least try to avoid this danger. The present volume aims to deal with early human growth at close range, by methods of systematic observation and of direct record. Chapter 1 of the present book takes an introductory glance at the total cycle of mental growth chiefly to suggest the close relations between the psychological and the biological aspects of developmental problems. Succeeding chapters deal with individual studies of a widely diversified group of infants and young children whose behavior was comparatively investigated at periodic intervals. By means of normative formulations of their advancing levels of maturity it has been possible to give objective expression to the course, the pattern, and the rate of mental growth in normal and exceptional children. Although, at the present stage of our methods, these measurements must be regarded as only approximations, the data are quantitatively presented by means of tables and of growth graphs. Unusual as well as usual growth complexes are discussed, but the emphasis throughout is on the normal aspects of infancy. All of the chapters bear directly or indirectly on normal mental growth"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved)

The psychology of early growth, including norms of infant behavior and a method of genetic analysis by Arnold Gesell( Book )

22 editions published between 1937 and 1982 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Yale studies of infancy which began a score of years ago were first published by The Macmillan Company under the somewhat extensive title, The Mental Growth of the Preschool Child. A Psychological Outline of Normal Development from Birth to the Sixth Year, Including a System of Developmental Diagnosis. This volume, which enjoyed several reprintings, is now out of print. The present volume represents a continuation and elaboration of the earlier studies and is based upon ten years of subsequent collaborative research in the Yale Clinic of Child Development. The present volume deals particularly with the biometric aspects of the normative investigation. These three publications are organically related to each other. It is hoped that the systematic and objective methods used will bring the study of infant development into closer alignment with biological and medical sciences. We believe that the growth processes which mold the body and the behavior of the human infant are in essence comparable with those which are being successfully analyzed by experimental embryology.
