Infant Perception Research Study

by Kim (follow)
Researchers from the Univerity of Newcastle are looking for infants between 4-10 months old to participate in a study exploring development in the first year of life.

What is the purpose of this study?

This study is a smaller part of the BabyMinds Study which explores the development of children in the first year of life. There is extensive research indicating they can tell people apart based on facial information; however, we do not know if they can tell people apart using body information.

In the current study, researchers will use eye tracking as they are interested in what grabs infants’ attention when they see pictures of people and how they might use features from bodies to tell people apart.

Who can participate?

Researchers are recruiting infants aged between 4 –10 months old who live in the Newcastle/Hunter/Central Coast Region. You must also be able to come attend a session at the University of Newcastle (Callaghan).

What will infants be required to do?

Infants will sit on a caregiver's lap in front of a computer screen for around 5 minutes and a camera will track where your baby looks, when looking at a series of images of people.

If you are interested in your child participating in this study, please contact researchers at babymindsstudy@gmail.com or visit their Facebook pages:

This study is being conducted by Dr Emma Axelsson. It has been approved by the University’s Human Research Ethics Committee (Approval No H-2016-0425).
