Infants Needed for Study of How They Think About Faces

Infant lab logo

The Infant Cognition Lab, part of the Child Study Center in psychological and brain sciences, is seeking infant participants age 11-12 and 18-24 months for a study investigating how infants think about faces.

Participants can be seen at one of two locations, the Infant Cognition Lab on campus or at the UMass Center at Springfield.

A onetime visit will last about 30-40 minutes. Infants will watch a fun puppet show and complete a reaching task using characters with different faces.

The parent of the participant will receive $15 and the infant will receive a toy.

If interested in participating, contact Charisse Pickron at 413/345-2939 or
