Babies wanted for autism research

13th January 2010

A team from Durham University is asking for parents to volunteer their children for a research project designed to discover how babies see the world.

Psychologists from the University's Queen's Campus in Stockton hopes the study will provide a better understanding on how the brain develops and lead to a clearer insight into conditions such as autism. Children under two are needed. Each child will be fitted with a cap with sensors attached so their brain activity can be recorded.
