This book deals primarily with literature which has accrued since 1920 covering the fetal period and the first two years of life. The references are confined to the theories drawn from psychology and biology on the fundamental processes underlying growth and development of behavior, and to objective studies of fetal and infant behavior.
The material is organized as follows: Part I, growth processes—theories of behavior development, evidence from biology and neurology, correlation of structure and function from animal studies; Part II, behavior of the human fetus; Part III, neonatal behavior; Part IV, behavior during infancy; Part V, summary and conclusions.
