The Child and Parent Emotions Study (CAPES)
The Child and Parent Emotions Study (CAPES) is a longitudinal study investigating how prospective (pregnant) and current parents think about child emotions, and how this relates to their parenting and their children’s development.
This study is led by Dr. Elizabeth Westrupp who is a senior lecturer and clinical psychologist at Deakin University’s School of Psychology within the Faculty of Health. Dr. Westrupp is also an honorary research fellow at the Department of Paediatrics at the University of Melbourne and the Judith Lumley Centre at La Trobe University.

How Do Babies Learn Words?
This research study is aiming to use electroencephalography (EEG) to discover how infants learn language. EEG is a completely safe and non-invasive tool used to measure brain wave activity patterns in infants, children, and adults.
Is my baby eligible to participate?
If your baby is aged between 8 and 16 months, he or she may be able to participate!
What happens if my baby and I participate in this study?
The research team will invite you to visit Deakin University’s Burwood campus for a 1-hour testing session. During this session, your baby will wear an EEG cap so the team can measure how well babies learn patterns. We will also ask you to complete a checklist about how many words your baby knows.
This study is led by Associate Professor Jarrad Lum who works as part of the Cognitive Neuroscience Unit team at Deakin University’s School of Psychology within the Faculty of Health.
