Child Learning Lab is Recruiting!
The Child Learning Lab at Seton Hall University is recruiting
children between 0 and 5 years of age to participate in developmental
The Child Learning Lab, led by Dr. Amy Joh in the department of
Psychology, studies how young children learn to plan and perform
goal-directed actions that are important for everyday activity. Some of
our studies involve asking children to navigate around an obstacle to
reach an interesting goal, choose a tool that can remove a small toy
stuck inside a narrow tube, or guess where a ball will come out when
dropped into a twisted tube. These actions are simple and
straightforward to adults. However, they are complicated for young
children because they require multiple steps such as gathering
perceptual information, watching and learning how other people solve
problems, coming up with useful strategies, and learning from the
outcomes of actions. By studying how children plan and perform
goal-directed actions, we hope to learn more about important
developmental processes occurring during early childhood.
Our studies are designed to be fun, age-appropriate games for
children between 0 and 5 years of age. Each study lasts approximately 1
hour, takes place in our lab on campus, and is scheduled to be as
convenient as possible for you and your child.
If you are interested in participating in our research with your child, please contact us by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (973) 275-2483. Or, please visit our website to enroll your child using an online form, learn about our current
studies, read published articles of previous studies, and meet the Child
Learning Lab team.
