Infant Visit

Infant Visit

nfants young infants may be held by their parent. When infants are old enough, they will sit in a Bumbo baby seat. Infants will either watch fun, appealing videos or will listen to sounds. After adjustments, infants will wear the net for 15-45 minutes. We will stop immediately if your child is uncomfortable or fussy or you ask to stop.Often, we have infants come in for multiple visits over the course of their first year. More information about specific visits and informational videos will be available soon.
Testing a young infant

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.
