Short Project Description
RAs at ECCL perform multiple duties. In some studies, RAs are actors in experimental paradigms which involve playing various roles according to a script. In other studies, RAs act as observers (for example, by coding infant eye gaze). RAs are also responsible for coding infant behavior from video, data entry, subject recruitment and scheduling, video editing, babysitting, and other research-related tasks. RAs receive intensive training at the start of their RA-ship on how to perform these duties.
