What is your toddler thinking? Want to know? Help us find out!
We are a research lab at the University of Massachusetts Boston exploring how toddlers perceive the world around them and how they learn from it.
In this particular study, we are looking at how toddlers pay attention to objects that they see. In order to study this, toddlers will watch a short 5-10 minute child-friendly video while we track where they are looking on the screen. Then they will play with some toys with a member of our lab while doing problem-solving tasks (this part lasts about 1 hour). The entire visit typically lasts about 2 hours.
