Lab invites you to participate in our exciting Husky See, Husky Do study.
The Cognition, Action, and Psychophysiology (C.A.P.) Lab in the Psychology Department at
UConn Waterbury Campus is actively seeking participants between the ages of 1 to 2 months for
the Husky See, Husky Do study on infant social learning. The goal of the Husky See, Husky Do
study is to gather information about the normal development of social learning over the first 2
years of life.
What does participating in the Husky See, Husky Do study involve?
We invite you and your baby to visit us at the C.A.P. Lab to play imitation games. As part of our
longitudinal study, you would visit us when your infant is 1-2 months and again when your
infant is 6, 12, 18, and 24 months of age, for a total of five 45 minute visits.
We offer flexible scheduling, plus free and convenient parking. Of course, you will be with your
infant at all times, and siblings, grandparents, etc. are welcome to come along as well! As a
special thank you for participating, your baby will typically receive a bib or t-shirt with our lab
logo (see below) and an official certificate of participation (perfect for framing!). For your first
two visits, we are also able to offer $25 (cash) compensation. You can find out about our most
current project findings by going to our lab website and facebook page (see below). We are
called the "C.A.P. Lab" because as we play games, your infant will wear a stretchy cap with
sensors (to record brain waves) and two small sticky patches on his/her back (to record heart
activity). These procedures are non-invasive (not harmful in any way), and similar to those used
in a doctor's office. In fact, babies are often too busy playing with us to even notice!
How do I sign up or find out more about the Husky See, Husky Do study?
We would love the chance to talk with you! To find out more, contact us
( show contact info
