Behavioral methods in infant research

Behavioral methods in infant research

  • Instructor(s): Desiree Capel 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.
