The Vision & Perception Neuroscience Lab at Stanford University is recruiting children between the ages of 5-7 and 9-11 years old to take part in a study of brain development!

Who we are:

This project:

How you can join in!

The Vision and Perception Neuroscience Lab is located at Stanford University in historic Jordan Hall. We are a group of vision scientists studying how the human brain processes what you see. We are mapping out the regions of the brain that enable you to recognize anything from faces and bodies to words and numbers.

Some regions of the brain seem to be hardwired from birth, while others are shaped by your experiences well into adulthood. We are conducting a large study to investigate how these visual regions of the brain develop from childhood to adulthood, as little is currently known. We use a variety of games and behavioral tasks as well as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to study children's normal development. fMRI is a non-invasive and safe technology that uses a magnetic field to measure the blood flow in the brain while children look at pictures, perform cognitive tasks, or play a computer game.

Our lab is searching for children between the ages of 5-7 and 9-11 years old who would like to take part in this research project. This will be a great hands-on learning experience, as we take to the time to discuss the science behind all of our experiments, and your child will get the opportunity to see their own brain and take a picture home with them! Your child will be financially compensated for their time ($10 per behavioral session, $30 per fMRI session).
