Research Methods in Early Child Development

At the Department of Research Methods in Early Child Development we investigate the underlying mechanisms of young children’s social interactions with their peers.

In our research we integrate eye tracking and motion sensor technology into behavioral paradigms to measure children’s internal arousal as well as their emotional expression. With these new scientific lenses emotions and the underlying mechanisms of behavior become visible, measurable, and interpretable.

We are a small but steadily growing team and always welcome inquires for Bachelor and Masters thesis projects.
