The KCU Baby Development Lab examines perceptual, cognitive, and social development in the first year of life.
During our appointments, the parent sits with their child on their lap while we show the baby images on a TV monitor.
Because previous research has shown babies look longer to something that is new or novel to them, we design studies based upon this fact to determine what a baby ‘knows’ about the world.
This helps us learn about how a baby’s brain responds to different types of information in the first year of life.
