A study with 34-hr-old infants replicated previous findings with 70-hr-old Ss which show that infants cry to the sound of another newborn's cry and that the cry is a response to the vocal properties of the other's cry. Ss exposed to the newborn cry cried significantly more often than those exposed to silence and those exposed to a synthetic newborn cry of the same intensity.
