Infant and Child Studies Project

Welcome to the Infant & Child Studies Project!

Have you ever wondered if what you, a grown-up, sees is the same as what 6-year-olds see? What about 4-year-olds? Do young children perceive things differently than toddlers? Under the direction of Dr. Peter Gerhardstein, our studies use eye-tracking technology, touchscreens, and puzzles to investigate visual and cognitive development in infants and young children. 

The Infant and Child Studies Project, also known as the Baby Lab, investigates the perceptual and attention processes that influence the formation of visual memories in addition to exploring the structure and content of visual representations. We subscribe to the view that processes from all of these areas are interrelated.

The Baby Lab is a member of Binghamton University's Center for Development and Behavioral Neuroscience (CDBN). The CDBN promotes both basic and applied research examining the development of normal and abnormal behavior and their biological bases.
