EEG Coherence

This task serves two purposes: first, to observe how the developing brain signal decomposes into separate frequency bands as a function of what the child sees; second: to understand how the connectivity among different areas of the developing brain develops. Infants passively watch 60-second video clips depicting singing women or moving toys while we measure their EEG. This task lasts 3 minutes. Stimuli were two sets of videos. One is a set of non-social videos depicting moving toys without human interference, earlier used in a study by Jones and colleagues (Developmental changes in infant brain activity during naturalistic social experiences. Developmental Psychobiology, 57(7; 2015)). The other is a set of social videos depicting singing women (Dutch stimuli created by Sabine Hunnius and colleagues). Both sets are 60 seconds long.
