What is the Cusack Lab?
The Cusack lab is a group of neonatologists, neuroscientists and developmental psychologists that aim to characterise infant neurodevelopment and the ways that infants learn in the first two years of life. Using a multitude of research techniques such as online curiosity studies (baby.cusacklab.org) and fMRI (FOUNDCOG: Foundations in Cognition). We recruit all types of infant participants at the various developmental stages between 1 to 14 months.
