Current studies open for enrollment:
Infant Social Brain Study: We are recruiting infants around6 months of age for an EEG study! Electroencephalography (EEG) is safe and painless. Babies wear a hat while watching videos and listening to sounds. The hat has electrodes to record brain activity. We may also use a device to record where babies look. Between 5.5 months to 8.5 months of age, infants would participate in 4 visits to the Developmental Brain Laboratory at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. There is the option to complete 2 of the visits at home instead of at UNL. Parents will also be asked to do some home training (~20 minutes a day for ~3 days). Participants can earn up to $75 in Walmart gift cards. Contact Caitlin by email or by phone (402-472-3720) to learn more about the study.
What is social brain?
Do babies know that other people have thoughts and feelings different from their own?
How does the social brain grow from 6-months to 8-months of age?
