    Title of Study: Neurodevelopmental measures for attention research among infants and young children.

    Principal Investigator: Nancy Fiedler, PhD

    Purpose: To develop tests of attention and memory for young children

    Who Participates: 20 healthy children between the ages of 10 and 20 months

    Study Procedures: 

    Parents are screened for eligibility of their children over the phone. This screening takes about 15 minutes. If the child is eligible, an appointment will be made for the testing session. During the session, the child will be seated in a high chair and the parent will be seated next to him/her. The child will face a computer screen where images (like faces, toys, or abstract figures) appear. The child will also be given small objects to hold. During the testing, the child will be videorecorded so that researchers can score his/her eye movements. The session should take about 1 hour.

    Compensation: $25 for the study visit.
