Notes on individual differences and the assumed elusiveness of neonatal imitation

Abstract [en]

This chapter summarizes research on early imitation carried out in Sweden over the last 15 years. Research showing that imitation observed in the newborn period can be demonstrated, but also that the processes behind imitation in the neonate are both complex and fragile. One example of such processes is the large variability in imitative responses observed by many investigators studying imitation in the newborn period. This variability has been specifically studied in the Swedish cohorts, and it seems as if real individual differences are at play from the very beginning.
