Help us with our studies!


Welcome to the LAB!

Upon your arrival, one of our friendly lab members will invite you to have a seat and introduce you to our facility here at the Center for Mind and Brain.


Games and Paperwork

While parents go over paperwork, a research assistant interacts with the children through a game of their choice.

Research assistants take this time to interact with the children so that they are comfortable during the study session.

Study Sessions: Children at Work



After our first game children are invited into either the Shrek room or the Monsters Inc. room.

Their participation typically involves interaction with a computer and our friendly lab members.

Children participate at their own pace and are encouraged to take breaks when needed.



We encourage parents to view their children through our one way mirror.

Parents can watch and listen to their children throughout the entire session.

Our sessions are fun and flexible; kids are encouraged to take short breaks throughout the sessions.


All done! PRIZES!

After the completion of each session children are rewarded for their participation.

Rewards include fun prizes (small toys or stickers), gift cards (Old Navy, Toys r Us, Barnes and Noble) or monetary compensation.
