Child-friendly laboratory

Infant and Child LaboratoryThe Infant and Child Laboratory is designed to be family-friendly. It includes a habituation lab and EEG equipment to measure electrical activity in the brain. There is also an observation room with cameras so children can be watched at play. The waiting area has comfortable seats and toys where other children can be minded by laboratory helpers.

The laboratory was partly funded by alumni donations.
