The Developmental Neuroscience Lab runs studies with children between the ages of 8 months and 8 years of age. Our research focuses on different developmental behaviors (e.g. social referencing, joint attention, etc.) and the brain bases behind them. The majority of our studies have a play based behavioral component with different toys and experimenters, and an Event Related Potential (ERP) component which measures brain activity in response to audio or visual stimuli.
What is the commitment?
It is a 3 quarter, 12 hour/week time commitment. Students will be trained in and assist with all aspects of data collection and analysis using behavioral and ERP measures. Students will participate in regular group and individual meetings with the professor.
