Some of the research facilities in the Phonetics Lab are specially equipped for our advanced research in Infant Language Studies. They are also designed to create a comfortable environment for participating infants and their parents.

Studies of infant perception demand especially adapted test methods that make use of the child’s natural curiosity and playfulness. Four different methods are primarily used to study speech perception in small children. The Stockholm Babylab research facilities include systems for EEG-registration, Eye tracking measurements, High Amplitude Sucking (HAS) and Head-Turn Procedure.

The Stockholm Babylab facilities include a waiting room equipped with toys and children’s books, ample space for prams, several toilets and a functional baby dressing-table for diaper changing.
