What can you expect when you participate in our studies?


When you arrive at our department at the Faculty of Psychology at University of Vienna, we will accompany you to one of our waiting/playrooms. Here 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.

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

Typically our studies take 10 to 30 minutes, so that your visit in our labs usually does not take more than one hour. 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!
