The Child Learning Laboratory at Seton Hall is Recruiting!

October 10, 2013 at 11:22 PM

The Child Learning Lab at Seton Hall University is recruiting children between 0 and 5 years of age to participate in developmental studies.

The Child Learning Lab, led by Dr. Amy Joh in the department of Psychology, studies how young children learn to plan and perform goal-directed actions that are important for everyday activity. Some of our studies involve asking children to navigate around an obstacle to reach an interesting goal, choose a tool that can remove a small toy stuck inside a narrow tube, or guess where a ball will come out when dropped into a twisted tube. By studying how children plan and perform goal-directed actions, we hope to learn more about important developmental processes occurring during early childhood.

Our studies are designed to be fun, age-appropriate games for children between 0 and 5 years of age. Each study lasts approximately 1 hour, takes place in our lab on campus in South Orange, and is scheduled to be as convenient as possible for you and your child.

If you are interested in participating in our research with your child, please contact us by email or phone (973-275-2483). Or, please visit our website to enroll your child using an online form, learn about our current studies, read published articles of previous studies, and meet the Child Learning Lab team.
