How to Participate
Join Us On
The Waiting Area...
The waiting area provides a place to complete necessary paperwork and allows infants and their siblings to play.
When you arrive, we will explain the procedure to you and ask you to complete a few forms. You will be given a copy of the consent form you sign to take home with you.
The Experiment Room...
We will ask you to have a seat in the chair in front of our eye-tracking monitor.
During the experiment, you and your infant will face the eye-tracking monitor. You may be asked to wear blacked-out sunglasses so the eye-tracker only detects your infant's eyes and not your eyes.
Viewing the Results...
After we have completed the experiment(s) we will show you the video of your child's session, explain the study and answer any questions you may have. Currently, the entire appointment (paperwork, experiment(s) and showing the video) takes about 30 minutes.
