Host Institution: Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS

Dates: 10-Jul-2017 - 14-Jul-2017
Location: Utrecht, Utrecht, Netherlands

Focus: The field of developmental cognitive neuroscience has made great progress over the past decades. To take it to the next level will require codification, innovation and further integration of experimental methodologies and quantitative aspects of data interpretation. The current summer school will acquaint students with a number of methods frequently applied in brain, cognition and behaviour research with infants and toddlers. Specifically, it will sensitize students to issues regarding reliability, replicability, and validity, and have them explore how these issues relate to general and specific susceptibilities of current techniques and quantitative methods.
Minimum Education Level: BA
Special Qualifications: Advanced master students are welcome with the minimal experience of designing one experiment.

The summer school will include lectures from experts in various techniques, interactive discussion sessions, student presentations, and a one-day symposium on methodological considerations in infants and toddler research.

Confirmed speakers are:

Celeste Kidd - Behavioral methods and the Goldilocks effect in cognitive research with infants
Jean-Remy Hochmann - Eye tracking and pupillometry in early speech and language perception by infants
Vincent Reid - EEG/ERP research to study the development of visual perception in infants
Anna Blasi - fNIRS for studying social development in infants
