"Which amount will Kelly choose?": Study overview

Eligibility criteria

For babies ages 12 to 15 months

Duration 15 minutes

This study is currently volunteer-based and not providing compensation. We will send you a customized non-monetary certificate featuring your child scientist roughly a week after your participation.

What happens

Your baby will watch videos of our friend Kelly choosing between different amounts of toys. We are studying how babies expect other people to make choices. You’ll need a high chair or stroller for your baby to sit in during the study.

What we're studying

Babies prefer the larger amount when choosing for themselves. Do babies also expect others to have the same preference for larger quantities as themselves? The current study will help us understand how we come to figure out what other people prefer by examining what kind of events babies prefer to look at.
