Information for Parents of Participants

Thank you for your interest in the Yonas Lab!

Without parents like you, we would not be able to research the development of human perception. We appreciate your time and energy.

When you come to the Institute of Child Development with your child, you will be met by one of our research assistants (mostly undergraduate child psychology students). Other parents and children have found the lab to be fun and welcoming! If there is anything we can do to make the experience more comfortable for you and your baby, please let us know.

You can find descriptions of our current infant studies here.
