Neonate Sensations and Perceptions
In the past, researchers underestimated the sensory and perceptual abilities of newborns. Based on the information presented in this chapter, describe what a newborn may experience in the first day of life (i.e., could hear voices and recognize motherâ€™s voice, could see shapes far away and when mother held the baby, could see her face). Your essay should be written in paragraph form and follow APA format.

In order to achieve a B (80-89), you must show that you have become involved in the thought process and used critical thinking skills to answer the questions.
