Research Assistants Needed!

Dr. Kang Lee’s Development Lab is looking for highly dedicated and enthusiastic students to volunteer with us!
You will be involved in a series of studies examining the development of face processing from infancy to adulthood. Using eye-tracking technology, we examine the ways in which infants, children, and adults examine and recognize faces and what factors (e.g., experience) influence such face processing abilities. Neurobehavioral methods (e.g., fNIRS) will also be used to investigate the effects of social and non-social stimuli/interactions on brain activity in children and adults. You will be involved in recruiting participants, running the experiments, coding data, preparing stimuli, and recording the results. You will also participate in training sessions to acquire the necessary skills for the current project.
