CAP Lab is recruiting infants and parents for new infant emotion study

From: The CAP Lab - Psychology Department

The CAP Lab in the Psychology Department at Virginia Tech is conducting a recruiting families for their new infant emotion study focused on emotion during infancy and toddlerhood.

Participation involves six “visits” with us between the time your infant is 6 and 26 months of age. We are recruiting infants who are 6 months of age and who were born full term, with no prenatal or birth complications.

The first visit is online questionnaires and you will receive a $25 Amazon gift card.

We anticipate that the second or third and then all remaining visits will be in our research lab. These are 1-hour visits at 10, 14, and 18 months during which your infant will play some emotion games with us, while wearing a little sensor cap to collect brain-wave activity (EEG). Your infant will sit on your lap and in a highchair beside you during the visit. You would complete the same online questionnaires at each visit.  At 22 and 26 months, there is no sensor cap and the games are big-kid thinking and waiting games.

You will receive $50 cash at each lab visit. Come and be a part of the CAP Lab’s science family! Contact Leslie Patton at (540)231-2320 or lapatton@vt.edu to hear more details.
