We are offering BSc thesis topics on tactile perception in babies for 1 or 2 BSc students

We are looking for 1 or 2 Bachelor students for a BSC thesis project.

When can babies feel touch? And how does their knowledge about their own body develop? When can a baby guide its hand toward a body part that has been touched?

We are assessing the ability of 3-7 month-old babies to respond to tactile stimulation on different body parts. The task at hand is to systematize and categorize the babies’ behavior. This requires the qualitative description and the quantitative coding of behavior that has been recorded on video.

The thesis can start immediately.
