Twelve infants were videotaped during a play session with a female experimenter, in which the experimenter alternately imitated all the infants' actions, smiles, and vocalizations, imitated only smiles, and imitated none of the infants' behaviours. It was found that infants were significantly more likely to repeat an action or vocalization when the adult imitated it, but were not more likely to repeat a smile when this was imitated by the adult.
