In this study, we are interested in how children's spatial skills develop. To do this, we are studying how children come to recognize objects from different viewpoints, which is an important spatial skill. The ability to mentally rotate objects, and recognize them when seen from different perspectives, is important for children as they learn to navigate the world and interact with objects. 

Visual Acuity

A classic approach for assessing infant vision sensitivity is to measure their ability to resolve fine details using square wave gratings. Black and white stripes are shown to your infant and if they can see the stripes of the grating, they should prefer to look to them. We are investigating whether an eye tracking procedure is comparable to more commonly used Teller Acuity Cards.

Infant Scene Perception - Point of View (ISP-POV)

This study aims to understand the unique contribution of an infant's own motor development upon their visual behavior. Infants are born into a visually complex, stimulus-rich world, yet we know that they are highly skilled at orienting their attention to relevant information. We also know that this skill evolves over time, such that, a younger infant may display different patterns of visual scanning than an older infant. This being the case, how do infant's at varying stages in motor development look at scenes differently? 

Or you can now participate from home with our online studies! 

We are not currently running any online studies at this time, but if you still want to participate with other labs you can find studies for your child on Lookit.
