The aim of the present study is to review the existing literature on Nonnutritive Sucking (NNS ) as a tool for investigating neonatal capabilities. Three research areas where NNS was utilized with newborn and infants are considered: regulation of states, visual scanning, attentional processes. In the light of new reported data concerning the relation between NNS and processing of visual and acoustic information at birth, a comprehensive interpretative framework is presented to explain the apparently contradictory results emerging from the three outlined research fields.

Abstract

The aim of the present study is to review the existing literature on Nonnutritive Sucking (NNS ) as a tool for investigating neonatal capabilities. Three research areas where NNS was utilized with newborn and infants are considered: regulation of states, visual scanning, attentional processes. In the light of new reported data concerning the relation between NNS and processing of visual and acoustic information at birth, a comprehensive interpretative framework is presented to explain the apparently contradictory results emerging from the three outlined research fields.
