ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF INFANT SOCIAL PROCESSING
Ages: 0-4 months
This study aims to assess how gene expression and parent-child interactions shape social processing during the first year of life.
You will make one visit to the lab which will last about two hours.
Parent and Infant will provide a small saliva sample for DNA analysis
Undergo a video-recorded feeding session with their child (this could be bottle-feeding or breast-feeding depending on the child’s normal feeding patterns)
The infant will be rocked to sleep (as per their normal nap-time routine) and then placed in our fMRI scanner. Images of their brain will be taken as they listen to varying sounds (female infant-directed speech and running water) and as they are gently stroked on their foot with a paintbrush.
As a thank you for your time, you will be compensated with a $50 visa gift card at the end of the visit.
