|What we're studying
This study examines how babies use what they see and hear to understand the world around them. The question we are investigating is whether babies can tell whether objects and the sounds that they make belong together. This is not a new question. We have investigated this question before but in a controlled lab setting. Now, we are using Lookit to see if this phenomenon still exists in a new and less controlled environment like your home. To answer our research question, we will measure how much time your baby looks at each of the objects on the screen while listening to an occasional sound.
