EPIGENETIC INFLUENCES ON SOCIAL BRAIN DEVELOPMENT
Ages: 0 - 4 months
We are looking at how gene expression and brain activity shape social development over the first year of life.
We ask that you will make 4-5 visits to the lab, when your child is 0, 4, 8, 12, and 16 months old.
Undergo EEG while presented with social and nonsocial stimuli

The parent will also provide a small sample of saliva.
