Research Team 13
Supervised by Judith Pena-Shaff
Office: 119-D Williams
Our research team focuses on answering questions related to human development and on assessing the effectiveness of educational programs within the community. Starting in the fall of 2014, our team will be working on an interdisciplinary experimental research to examine 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 will be responsible for: a) the locomotor training and non-locomotor training sessions with infants; and b) data analyses from these sessions (through video analyses and live observations) and from parent-questionnaires.
