The School of Psychology at University of Nottingham and Nottingham’s Institute of Mental Health created a mother-baby research project called NeuroSync.
Families with babies from 6-9 months are invited to take part in the study that will happen at the Infant and Toddler Lab at the University Park campus.
The research will investigate the way babies interact, respond and sync with their mothers.
The study will evaluate how these connections will build and develop the critical cognitive functions and brain networks in babies.
It will involve 2-4 visits each year during three years to see how connections change throughout the time.
At the time of the visit caps with sensors will be put on the mother and baby’s head to measure the brain activity safely while both play together and bond.
For each visit the parents will be paid £10 as a ‘thank you’ for their collaboration.
If you’re interested in taking part of the project or know someone who might be, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 0115 951 5312 for any queries or more information.
