What are children asked to do?
Children play with us in short, game-like activities. They are often on a computer and involve props of various kinds. Depending on the study, testing takes place at a child's school or home, in our lab, or in public places such as the local library or museums. We use a non-pressured format in which children get excited about what they are asked to do. At the end of a research game, children receive a small gift and a certificate. If at any point during the game the child gets bored or would like to stop playing, he or she can stop the game at any time and will still get the gift.
