Summary One of a three-part series on psychological and motor skill advancements in infants from birth to 18 months. This segment explores how babies develop motor skills that lead to crawling and walking. A crawling baby can cover a distance of three football fields in a day. Yet the destiny of a human infant is not to crawl, but to walk. Assesses motor development in infants as they learn to take their first steps by presenting experiments conducted by Indiana University Professor of Psychology Esther Thelen, and Dr. Karen Adolph, from New York University. Evidence suggests that new crawlers are unable to assess danger; that fear of heights is linked to expansion of peripheral vision; and that babies must learn and relearn lessons to adapt to their environment.
