Abstract

This study examined the age of onset of the capacity to align with direction of gaze, and the relations between individual differences in this capacity, temperament and language acquisition. Infants demonstrated the capacity to match mother's direction of gaze, and individual differences in this capacity were related to temperament and vocabulary development.
