How does early experience influence infant brain and behavior?


What changes in the brain affect emotional regulation over time?


What can infants teach us about early development?


The purpose of our research is to learn more about how very early experiences influence the developing brain and impact child well-being.

During the first phase of the study, our goal is to survey as many pregnant women as we can to learn about their experiences during pregnancy. To do this, we email online questionnaires to participants for them to complete at their convenience.

In the second phase, we will invite a smaller number of families back and we will ask to follow up with them five more times during their baby's first two years of life.

We sincerely thank you for your consideration!
