STUDY 3 (LAB-BASED) – RECRUITING


Title: Behavioural and neural correlates of executive functioning performance during late pregnancy: A between-groups EEG study

We are currently seeking:

Adult women who are pregnant in their third trimester

AND

STUDY 4 (LAB-BASED) – Recruitment finished


Title: Does pregnancy cause changes in the behavioural and neural correlates of executive functioning performance?: A longitudinal EEG study

This study aimed to investigate whether the subtle objective changes in executive functioning can be observed at the psychophysiological level by looking at changes in brain wave patterns before and during pregnancy.

Recruitment for this study has now ended. The Baby Brain Research Project team is currently preparing a manuscript for submission to scientific journals. This is expected to be completed in the first half of 2019.
