US and Canada Public Pension System Data 2008-2018

Ingo Walter, Clive Lipshitz, Fernando Falbo, Patricio Cox & Lebogang Mahlare
This dataset comprises eleven years of historical data (2008 through 2018) for the 25 largest U.S. public pension plans and the ten largest Canadian public pension plans.

Visual search and attention to faces during early infancy

Michael C. Frank
Newborn babies look preferentially at faces and face-like displays, yet over the course of their first year much changes about both the way infants process visual stimuli and how they allocate their attention to the social world. Despite this initial preference for faces in restricted contexts, the amount that infants look at faces increases considerably during the first year. Is this development related to changes in attentional orienting abilities? We explored this possibility by showing...

Magnet imitation task demonstration

Rachel Barr
This is an excerpt of children doing the magnet imitation task on both a touchscreen and on a magnet board. The task allows researchers to probe how children learn to transfer information between 2D and 3D surfaces to examine memory representations. In practice the task has implications for puzzle play and also for learning from touchscreens and television during early childhood. Video file of information about the task. http://www.georgetown.edu/video/1242739572192.html

Teach to reach: The effects of active vs. passive reaching experiences on action and perception

Amy Needham
Reaching is an important and early emerging motor skill that allows infants to interact with the physical and social world. However, few studies have considered how reaching experiences shape infants’ own motor development and their perception of actions performed by others. In the current study, two groups of infants received daily parent guided play sessions over a 2-weeks training period. Using ‘‘Sticky Mittens”, one group was enabled to independently pick up objects whereas the other...

Examples of rhythmical stereotypical behaviors at 4 and 7 months

William Fabricius
One female infant is shown in two clips displaying rhythmic stereotypical behaviors at 4 months of age (1 minute) and at 7 months of age (2 minutes). The second clip shows her alternating between rhythmic movements of the hands and attempts at voluntary grasping with one hand.

Databrary sponsored workshops and events

Karen Adolph, Rick O. Gilmore, & Databrary Admin
Our mission is to promote sharing and reuse of video data. Most developmental scientists rely on video recordings to capture the complexity and richness of behavior. However, researchers rarely share video data, and this has impeded scientific progress. Enabling reuse of video data is essential to increasing openness, maximizing the efficiency of limited resources, and accelerating the pace of discovery in the developmental and learning sciences. We aim to provide tools that encourage good data...

Biological Motions

Bennett I. Bertenthal
The structure of the human form is quickly and unequivocably recognized from 10 to 13 points of light moving as if attached to the major joints and head of a person walking Recent psychophysical and computational models of this process suggest that these displays are organized by low-level processing constraints that delimit the pair-wise connections of the point lights In the current research, these low-level constraints were rendered uninformative by a masking paradigm The results...

Science Friday: Babies on the brink

Karen Adolph
Since the 1960s, developmental psychologists point to the “Visual Cliff”—an experiment that plops babies on a fake precipice—as proof that infants learn to fear heights as they learn to crawl. But over the past 25 years, Karen Adolph of NYU’s Infant Action Lab has shattered this myth through a series of rigorous (and adorable) experiments, revealing that while babies can learn from experiences near high ledges or narrow bridges, it’s not a phobia they acquire....

Free viewing gaze behavior in infants and adults

John Franchak & Karen Adolph
The current study investigated age differences in free viewing gaze behavior. Adults and 6-, 9-, 12-, and 24-month-old infants watched a 60-sec Sesame Street video clip while their eye movements were recorded. Adults displayed high intersubject consistency in eye movements; they tended to fixate the same places at the same. Infants showed weaker consistency between obser- vers and intersubject consistency increased with age. Across age groups, the influence of both bottom-up features (fixating visually salient...

EEG Asymmetry and ERN: Behavioral Outcomes in Preschoolers

Rebecca Jo Brooker
Paper in press at PLOS One examining associations between the error-related negativity (ERN) and alpha asymmetry in preschoolers. Similar to research on adults, greater left asymmetry (i.e., greater approach-related neural activity) was correlated with reduced ERN amplitude (i.e., weaker inhibition-related neural activity). The interactive effect of asymmetry and ERN amplitude did not predict ADHD symptoms, but did predict social inhibition. When ERN was greater, less left asymmetry was associated with higher levels of social inhibition....

The Social Origins of Sustained Attention in One-Year-Old Human Infants

Chen Yu
The ability to sustain attention is a major achievement in human development and is generally believed to be the developmental product of increasing self-regulatory and endogenous (i.e., internal, top-down, voluntary) control over one’s attention and cognitive systems [ 1–5 ]. Because sustained attention in late infancy is predictive of future development, and because early deficits in sustained attention are markers for later diagnoses of attentional disorders [ 6 ], sustained attention is often viewed as...

Excerpt volume: Illustrations from motor development of Siegler's \"Overlapping Waves Model\" of strategy choice

Karen Adolph
Siegler's "Overlapping Waves Model" proposes that strategies enter children's repertoires at different times and change in frequency over development as behavior becomes more adaptive and functional. Here, we illustrate the Overlapping Waves Model with video clips from several studies in infant and child motor development. (See links for specific papers relevant to the excerpts). Illustration #1: Infants' use of various strategies for descending impossibly steep slopes (backing feet first, sliding head first, sitting, crawling, walking,...

The developmental time course and topographic distribution of individual-level monkey face discrimination in the infant brain

Lisa Scott
Data to accompany Barry-Anwar et al., (in press) paper in Neuropsychologia. The files contain EEG signal to noise ratios for 6- and 9-month-old infants by trial and averaged by participant. The document "Legend" contains additional information about these data sets.

Individual data of \"Shirai et al. (submitted). Differences in the magnitude of representational momentum between school-aged children and adults as a function of experimental task\"

Nobu Shirai
Representational momentum (RM) is the phenomenon that occurs when an object moves and then disappears, and the recalled final position of the object shifts in the direction of its motion. Findings on the magnitude of RM exhibited during childhood are not completely consistent. Some findings indicate that the magnitude of RM in early childhood is comparable to that in adulthood, while others suggest that the magnitude of RM is significantly greater in childhood than in...
