Première conférence internationale sur le bâillement
First International Conference on Yawning
Paris 24 - 25 juin 2010
Yawning: A comparative-developmental perspective
James R. Anderson
Department of Psychology, University of Stirling, UK
I will review the literature on yawning especially by nonhuman primates, focusing on development, and contexts of occurrence. Work on the extent to which yawning can be voluntarily controlled will be considered, along with implications for possible social functions of the behaviour. There will also be a review of studies on the "contagiousness" of yawning in humans and nonhuman primates, with discussion of the outcomes in terms of the ontogeny and phylogency of aspects of self-awareness. Finally, consideration will be given to the role of "empathy" in contagious yawning.
