Developmental and Educational Psychology Research Team
Research Team 13
Supervised by Laura Muscalu (spring 2017)
(Judith Pena-Shaff after spring 2017)
Office: 119-G Williams

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 self-initiated locomotion and information processing.
