Life Through the Eyes of Your Baby

Is your baby 1- to 6-weeks-old?

The Developmental Social Neuroscience Lab (University of York) is looking for parents and their babies aged 1- to 6-weeks-old to participate in research about what infants see and hear during their everyday life.

This research will help us learn about babyโ€™s social development during the first months after birth. We are looking for participants and for people to help us test-run (pilot) the procedure.

We will give you two baby friendly action cameras to record what you and your baby see and hear for 2h/day for a week. The baby camera will be safely attached to a hat made especially for your baby.

As a reward for participation, your baby will receive a certificate. If youโ€™d like, we can also give you a copy of the recordings. You will also receive ยฃ20 for your time.

The Great Grape Game – University of York

We are looking for children to take part in The Great Grape Game!

This fun 15 minute online game is part of a University of York project which is developing ways to encourage healthy eating in children.

In this game, kids save grapes before they disappear from the screen by pressing a button as fast as possible. Afterwards we’ll send them a downloadable certificate for taking part!

We are looking for children aged 4-12. Though the rules of the game are simple, younger children might need some help at first.ย  You can play it at any time thatโ€™s convenient for you and your child and it shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes.

To tell us that you are interested, please follow the link below and fill in your details. Weโ€™ll quickly get back to you with a link to click and play. All you need is a quiet room at home and a laptop or desktop computer with working speakers, and stable wifi.
