Our research team focuses on answering questions related to human development, learning, and education. Our team is currently working on a three-year multidisciplinary experimental study examining the effect of locomotor experience (learning to use a robotic mobility device with the Wii balance board as interface), on the development of executive function and mastery motivation in typically developing pre-crawling infants (babies 5-to 7-months old). Our team is responsible for: a) running the locomotor and non-locomotor training sessions with infants; and b) conducting data analyses on the development of mastery motivation (through video analyses and live observations) and from parent-questionnaires.
