Developmental Mechanisms of Perception and Language in the Infant Brain (EAGER)

Brief Description

The purpose of this study is to learn more about how infants process pictures of familiar objects and word sounds during their first 1.5 years of life. In order to investigate how age influences infants’ perceptions, we will measure brain activity as 6-9 month and 12-15 month old infants look at pictures of familiar objects and/or hear familiar words.

Eligibility for Participation

  • We are currently enrolling typically developing infants:
  • Between 6-9 months of age and 12-15 months of age
  • Born within 3 weeks of due date

Participation Details

This study involves two one-hour sessions. The sessions will be scheduled at times that are convenient for you and your infant and will be about 1-2 weeks apart. Parents will stay with their child at all times.
