    Short TitleInfant Cognition Lab
    Complete Description of 199Students in the infant cognition lab are engaged in all aspects of research with human infants. We test infants between the ages of 4 to 13 months. We are interested in their memory, categorization, and language abilities. Students interview parents, test infants, babysit siblings, code infant behavior from recordings, enter data, and so on. Students learn valuable skills such as manipulating data in Excel, analyzing data, using both windows and apple computers in research. This is a large lab, with graduate students, post-docs, staff, and undergraduates. Students will have direct contact with Professor Oakes, including a weekly 1-hour lab seminar which is required.
