Brain Development Project: Ages 3-4

In this project, we are studying how children’s brain develop in early years. Children will wear a child-friendly EEG cap (in the picture), and watch some cartoons. We’ll also ask parents to join their children about telling stories about cartoons they watch. We will be recording children’s brainwaves. This is a collaborative project with Dr. Jason Cowell (Neuroscience Lab, UW-Green Bay).

Global Kids Project (Long-term): Ages 6-11

This project focuses on social and cognitive development of children from ages 6 to 11. In this project, we will be working with the same group of children for 4 years. Children will play some child-friendly games, tell stories, and draw pictures. We are conducting this study globally – currently in Green Bay, U.S. and Japan. It takes about 1.5-hr to participate in this project.
