Watch a video about our study procedures here:

Once we scheduled an appointment, you will receive a confirmation e-mail including detailed information on the study and directions on how to get to our facilities at Liebiggasse 5. On-site, our owl signs will guide you to our reception room. 

In our reception and play rooms, you can take your time and together with your child get used to the new surroundings. Only when everyone feels comfortable and all questions have been clarified, we begin with the study.

Depending on the study, we will show your child videos or pictures, let her/him solve puzzles in a playful way or ask you as a parent to discover new toys together with your child. You will always be near to your child during the session.

In some studies, we record the brain activity of your child using brain imaging methods such as electroencephalography (EEG) or functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). These methods help us to record brain waves by tiny sensors attached to a cap. Of course, all of our methods are completely safe and risk free. Futher information about our methods can be found here.

Most of our studies take 30 to 60 minutes, so your visit in our labs usually does not take more than one hour. In case you or your child should not feel comfortable, the session can be stopped at any time. When we arrange an appointment, we will provide you with more detailed information about what to expect from us for the respective study.

Of course, we provide you with comfortable facilities for changing diapers and breastfeeding.

We look forward to your visit!
