Get Involved

At the Hungry Mind Lab, we are recruiting families to participate in research. If you are a parent of a baby aged 2-15 weeks old, we would love to hear from you!

All of our participants will receive a £30 Amazon shopping voucher as compensation for their time.

Lab Space

Our lab space is a safe and comfortable environment for parents and children. You will stay with your child at all times, while refreshments and the use of baby changing and feeding facilities are available.

iPhone Application

The smartphone app has been produced to assess babies’ developmental milestones at home, using activities adapted from the Mullen’s Scale of Early Learning. The app runs on iPhones (i.e. iOS operating systems).

Behaviour Observations

The dyanamic space allows us to observe how babies respond to and interact with the experimenter. Families who participate in our studies typically attend the lab for 1-2 hours.

Our study has been approved by the Ethics Committee of the University of York. Personal details and your data will be kept strictly confidential. You may withdraw from the study at any time.
