Once you have arrived to the lab, the child will have time to get comfortable with the researchers by coloring or playing with various games. During this time, we will go through paperwork and consent with the parents to explain the study in more detail. Parents and participants will have the opportunity to ask any questions at this time as well.
After paperwork has been filled out, we will have the child sit in the chair while watching a video clip of choice while we place the imaging cap on their head. Once we have fit the cap onto the participant’s head, the child will watch a series of various stimuli such as age-appropriate video-clips, visual and auditory stimuli, and moving white dots on a black background. In total, each session lasts about an hour and a half to two hours with paperwork and data collection.
