Behavioral methods in infant research

  • Instructor(s): Maartje de Klerk Utrecht University
  • Available also as advanced: No

In this tutorial, we’ll first provide a background on some behavioral
methods (visual fixation and headturn preference procedure)
used in infant research by discussing the designs as well as
different studies that have used these methods.

After the introduction, we’ll run actual experiments in the Babylab to
show you what equipment and which skills are needed to run these
experiments. We’ll also show you clips of babylab experiments from our
research project to demonstrate the ins and outs of subject/data
inclusion and exclusion and the reliability of coding the experiments.
Both the first part, theoretical in nature, and the second part, the
hands on approach, should lead to understanding of Babylab experiments.
