Mom and Infant Research Study


How does depression affect a mom and her 6-12 month old baby?

We're interested in how experiences with depression, including postpartum depression as well as depression earlier in a woman's life, may impact how babies process facial expressions of emotion and their interactions with their mother.

The study involves coming to the Binghamton University campus to complete some questionnaires and an interview and then playing with your baby for a few minutes. In addition to playing with you, your baby will do a couple computer tasks where we show them pictures of faces with different emotions and see which ones they look at.  The study takes 1-2 hours.

You'll receive $20/hour and your baby will receive a stuffed animal.
