Do you remember the card game "memory" you played as a kid? We want to see if infants can play this game, too! It's a slightly different set up, because instead of real cards, we use a video of cards played on our Tobii T120 eye tracker. That way, we can see exactly where your baby is looking.
We are looking for families with infants 5 to 9 months old to participate in this study. We offer $20 for participation, free parking, a certificate of appreciation and a small gift for your child.
Have a friend with an infant in the same age range? Great! Schedule your appointments at the same time and have a "play date" with us! There is plenty to do around campus - just read below for more information.
**If your child is not currently in this age range, click here to add your information to our general database.**
After your appointment, there's no need to rush home! While you're in Dorchester:
- Enjoy a stroll down the Boston Harborwalk
- Visit the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum. Children under 12 are admitted free.
- Tour the Commonwealth Museum, located in the State Archives Building. Admission is free for all.
Our research is supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Health.
