Posted by Tim on August 22, 2017 in Honors Experiences, Networking, Research Information and Opportunities

UB Infant Study

Our series of studies is the first to examine motivation for food and non-food alternatives in an infant population. Our newest longitudinal study includes music as a food alternative, based on our recently published pilot study (Reducing relative food reinforcement in infants by an enriched music experience). We are currently recruiting outstanding student researchers to help us recruit participants, learn and implement study protocols, enter/manage data, and assist with data collection (study session). Preference is given to students who can commit 2 semesters and/or summer semesters. You must be available on Thursday evenings 4:30 pm until 7:00 pm and/or Friday mornings 9:30-11:30 am.
