Vanderbilt Researchers Seeking Infants and Parents for a Study Linking Sight and Sound for Infant Learning

Researchers at Vanderbilt University are interested in how infants learn by combining sights, such as a squeaker toy, with its sound, the squeaking.

They are seeking typically developing infants between 0-24 months and their parents to come for two visits (one hour each) to the research playrooms at the Vanderbilt Bill Wilkerson Center.

During one visit, the infant will sit on the parent's lap and listen and look while pictures and sounds are played on a computer. During another visit, the infant will wear our stretchy monitoring cap and watch the computer screen
again.

Compensation: $10 for attempting, $20 for completing the study visits and a small gift for the child.
