  • Left holding the baby / Advanced / Чтение / Обучение
    already had a baby from which they had not been separated after birth The author suggests that the time immediately after birth is a critical period when the stimulus of holding the baby releases a certain material response That is to say she senses the baby better off on her left Left handed holding enables the baby to hear the heartbeat a sound associated with the security of the womb In order to discover whether hearing the heart has a beneficial effect on the baby the sound of a human heartbeat was played to 102 babies in a New York nursery for 4 days A control group of babies was not exposed to heartbeats The babies in the beat group gained markedly more weight and cried far less than the babies in the control group Task 1 Choose the correct variant ending of the sentence Looking at art books inspired Lee Salk to investigate pictures of Mary and Jesus the way mothers hold their babies the way people hold objects in times of stress the effect of the human heartbeat on premature babies Lee Salk found that left handed women tend to hold their babies on the right only right handed women tend to hold their babies on the left more right handed women than left handed women tend to hold their babies on the left women who hold their babies on the left are nearly all right handed In one experiment 102 babies spent four days separated from their mothers in a control group exposed to the sound of heartbeats losing their weight Salk s experiments proved that mothers have an instinct to hold their babies on the left immediately after birth hold their babies on the left at the times of stress of premature babies have instinct to hold their babies on the left find it more comfortable to carry their babies on the left because the heart is on that side Task 2 Choose the best meaning of the word expression according to the context The word this in bold refers to a large rubber ball the majority the fact that the ball interfered with the dentist s activity the fact that the patients held the ball on the left What was the apparently contradictory phenomenon Mothers of premature babies were seen to hold their children both on the right and on the left Mothers of premature babies held their babies on the correct side Mothers of premature babies took their babies to a follow up clinic The behaviour of mothers of premature babies disproved Lee Salk s theory Mothers were observed for holding response This means Mothers were observed to see how they answered experimenters questions to see how they held their babies to see how they spoke to their babies to test their reaction to separation from their babies The time after birth is important this is when babies must not be separated from their mothers the baby s response to the mother is released
