 Notes
Abstract: The purpose of this pilot study was to evaluate eye movement as an additional component of behavioral observation in preterm infants exposed to maternal voice. Infants received either daily exposure to a CD recording of their mother reciting a rhyme or standard NICU care. Infants exposed to the CD recording opened their eyes by 32 weeks of age when the maternal recording was played. Infants with no prior exposure did not open their eyes when the recording was played. This suggests that inclusion of eye movement observation is warranted in future evaluations of exposure to the maternal voice in preterm infants.
