Abstract

In this study, it was hypothesized that experimentally introduced noise would disrupt infant object mastery performance in the home environment. Twenty-four 12-month-old infants performed under control and experimental test conditions on alternating home visits. A tape-recording of talk radio conversations was introduced during the experimental test visit. Each videotaped visit included a test session with 6 short object mastery trials. The hypothesis was not supported. The implications of the findings are addressed.
