Why is this research important?
Detecting and telling apart the emotions shown by the people around us is a crucial skill for our social lives. Changes in facial or vocal expressivity tell us how people feel and help us decide how to interact with them. Over the past decades, scientists have revealed that within the first year after birth, babies develop amazing abilities to tell apart different emotional facial expressions. By the age of 9-12-months, babies also use emotional facial expressions to learn about the world around them. For example, they are less likely to touch an object if their mother has previously expressed fear towards that object. Scientists have also shown that already at birth babies can tell apart different emotional modulations present in the voice. However, in contrast to facial expressions, we know far less about how babies learn about emotional voices during the first year of life.
Our project focuses on understanding how the baby brain develops to detect and differentiate between different emotions expressed in the voice. We anticipate a great deal of variation in this ability, so there is no right or wrong. By discovering how babies learn about others’ emotions, we hope to find out how to foster children’s social and emotional wellbeing.
What does participation in the research involve?
Participating in this project involves one visit, lasting approximately one hour, to the University of York. During the research session, your baby will hear voices of other babies or of adults with different emotional intonations (e.g., happy, sad, angry). In order to record how the brain responds to these sounds, your baby will wear a special hat with sensors embedded in it (like the one shown in the picture).
Safe and secure research for babies: The hat is specifically designed for babies and it is comfortable to wear. The sensors are not harmful. They only capture the weak signal coming from the brain, in a similar way to the sensors present in smart watches for recording the heart activity. You will be with your baby at all times.
Thank you gift: Parents receive £10 to support the trip to the University of York and babies receive a small gift as a token of our appreciation for their help. We also provide free parking in case you decide to travel by car.
How can I participate in this research?
If you have a baby 1- to 10-months-old and are interested to take part in the project, please sign-up by filling in the form at the following link. The information you provide will be stored securely and will not be shared with anyone outside our team.
More information: Filling in the form does not mean you consent to participate. We will soon get in touch with more details about the project, and then you can decide whether you would like to schedule a research session at a date and time that suits you.
In case you would like to find out more before signing up, please contact us at: email@example.comWe are looking forward to hearing from you!

I would like to hear your fairly recent (within the last 5 years) experiences of low mood or depression during pregnancy or in the first year after childbirth (perinatal period), and any care that you may have received.
Why is this research important?
About one in ten women suffer from depression during pregnancy or after childbirth. Depression during this period can affect not only the woman but also her partner and children. Evidence suggests that although women have regular contact with health professionals, they do not tend to disclose their feelings and, therefore, perinatal depression often remains undiagnosed. Among those whose depression is detected and treated, few receive evidence-based treatments. It is an important issue to address due to the high prevalence of perinatal depression and impact on women, children and partners. Therefore, this study aims to understand the provision of care for women with perinatal low mood or depression and help them to explore the use of a talking therapy for treatment.
Your participation and sharing your story may help others in the future.
Who can take part in the study?
* Aged 18+
* Have felt or have been diagnosed with low mood or depression during pregnancy or in the first year after childbirth
* Whose youngest child is between 1 – 5 years old
* Who no longer experiences depression symptoms
* Living in York, Harrogate or Hull
What does participation in the study involve?
You will be asked to take part in an interview, which would be audio recorded and last for no more than 60min. You can choose a private and convenient location for the interview. Reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed and as a thank you gift for your time, a £20 One4all gift card will be presented. Participation in this study is completely voluntary. Your participation would be anonymous and your identity will be kept strictly confidential.
How can I participate in this study?
For more information or to take part, please contact me (PhD student Semra Pinar) on telephone: 07729 070393 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. I will give you more details about the study and then you can decide whether you would like to receive an information pack (includes participant information sheets, consent forms, demographics form, contact details sheet and a pre-paid stamped-addressed return envelope) by post. You are free to withdraw from the study at any time, even during the interview without giving reason for withdrawing.
I am looking forward to hearing from you!

You need to be good with detail and take pride in doing a job well. You’ll be required to give really high quality responses to advertising enquiries & have the ability to think about other people’s needs for their organisation.

It’s free for people to use both the website and the Facebook group and most businesses can have a free listing somewhere on the website as long as there is a relevant area. This takes a lot of time and upkeep so I’m looking for volunteers to help with the running of the facebook group and the website.

Martin House, which supports children and young people with life-limiting conditions, is looking for volunteers to help our fundraising across York.
The money you help to raise will make a real difference to the lives of the families we support. For example, raising £500 could pay for a parents’ support group, which gives mums and dads a place to relax, try new activities and share experiences with others in a similar situation.
Martin House provides respite stays at our hospice in Boston Spa, as well as providing care in hospital and in their own homes. Our care also includes emergency stays and end of life care, as well as bereavement support for the whole family.
It costs £22,000 a day to run Martin House, and most of that has to be raised by voluntary donations and fundraising, so the support of our communities is vital.
You may be able to host a collection tin at your place of work or have a silly dressing up day. There are also lots of other events in York including coffee mornings and bake sales and you are more than welcome to be involved if you can spare the time.
We also have a shop in Acomb where you can donate your unwanted items, or volunteer your time. If you have the time, we have an opportunity for you!

The children have a fantastic time, playing in our huge indoor and outdoor play park, feeding the animals, and exploring our Forest School area complete with pond!
The post will suit someone who wants to progress and develop their knowledge, who wants to discover the value of the Reggio Nursery and Forest School, and who has ideas and skills to bring to the talented group we already have.
The main thing we are told by our team, is how happy they are, many have worked in settings that they feel are not centred around the children, we are, and the ethos is very much on a Little Bugs Family, where everyone cares.

We are currently seeking host families in the Harrogate/ York area to look after children attending boarding school in the UK whose parents are based overseas, either as expatriates or as foreign nationals.
Children whose parents live overseas are often unable to go home for leave-out weekends and half term holidays and when this is the case, College Guardians finds host families to look after them.
It is noticeable that as half term holidays are getting longer, more children are going home for this period, so often we only need host families for leave-out weekends.
Dates and lengths of stay depend very much on the school that the child attends and the distance that their home is from the UK.
Families chose to host students for a number of different reasons, e.g. it introduces another culture into the home, the parents themselves have been at boarding school and so understand the importance of having a “home from home”, or their own children are studying a foreign language and this is a good opportunity to practice!
Our hosts are paid a daily rate that covers full board, in addition other expenses such as travel and sundries may be claimed.
If you are interested and would like further information, please contact Jane Eldridge, Director of Guardianship Services, firstname.lastname@example.org or Caroline Lloyd Guardianship Manager, email@example.com or call us for an informal discussion on 01684 581600.
Here at York Mumbler we always have a lot of parents and carers looking for a wide range of roles, including full-time, part-time, temporary and even research opportunities for them to get involved with.
