Most studies take place in our labs at Goldsmiths. But some are designed for you and your baby to do at home on your computer or phone.
Questionnaire for parents
Dr Evelyne Mercure has a questionnaire study looking at language development and maternal well-being during lockdown. It is mostly appropriate for mothers of babies between 12 and 24 months.
Video Study for 24-30 month olds – Musical abilities
We have teamed up with Cambridge Babylab to create a fun video study of toddlers drumming abilities. We’re looking for families with children aged 2 – 2.5 years to take part.
This helps us learn how controlling rhythm is related other developing skills.
The study takes ~15 minutes and can be done at home using your computer (and a table to bang on!) Click here to take part
