On August 1, 2001 the J. S. McDonnell Foundation awarded Richard N. Aslin (University of Rochester, NY) and Jacques Mehler (SISSA in Trieste, Italy) a grant to hold three or four workshops on “Infant looking: Methods used to assess cognitive development.” These workshops will involve 10-12 participants each and will focus on both looking-time measures and other methodologies (e.g., ERP, fMRI) that could be used in combination to gather more definitive data on infant perception, cognition, and language development.
The focus of the first workshop was on looking-time measures as used in perception, cognition, and language development. Paradigms reviewed included preferential looking, habituation, and violation of expectancy. The participants were:

The focus of the second workshop was on eye-tracking, ERP, fMRI, and NIRS (optical topography) as measures of behavior and neural activity which may complement data obtained using looking-time techniques. The participants were:
