Infant Heart Rate and Attention Laboratory
Experiment Demonstration
(Previous) (Next)

The goal of our research is to examine the role the brain plays in the development of infant attention. We present pictures, movies, or sounds to infants and see if they recognize them and pay attention to them. We record the "electrocardiogram" (ECG), and heart rate, because we can get a measure of attention to the pictures or sounds. This is a baby with ECG electrodes to record heart rate and EOG electrodes to record eye movements.
