Until construction work of our new lab rooms is complete, we are running our studies at the child lab of our cooperating partner, the Max-Planck-Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology (MPI EVA). The institute is located at Deutscher Platz 6 and can easily be reached with tram 2 or 16 (stop: Deutsche Nationalbibliothek).
The duration differs according to the study. When we call you and invite you to visit us, additional questions will be answered. On average, a study lasts 30 minutes.
Your child will receive a small toy for participating in our study.
