´╗┐Moving to Learn and Learning to Move

Infant Development Lab

427 Fisher Hall

The Infant Development Lab seeks to investigate how infants learn using their bodies and minds together. We focus on carefully observing and collecting data on both infants with typical development and infants with delayed or atypical development as new skills emerge. We also explore advances in intervention to accelerate and encourage the acquisition of early movement and thinking skills, and thus determine which interventions are most effective. Our focus is on activities and interventions that occur in the community with families.

Eye tracker used to study infant attention

The lab consists of a comfortable, family friendly room and is equipped with a Positive Science eyetracking system and multiple GoPro cameras for monitoring movement and vision in real-life situations. The small, portable equipment lets our research take place in the home or day care setting of the infant, allowing capture and subsequent analysis of natural behaviors.
