Ola Dopierala

Postdoctoral Fellow


In my work, I study the neural correlates of cognition in infants. I use a variety of methods, mostly fNIRS but also eye-tracking, EEG, and fMRI.

I'm currently working on the Exploration project, which measures infant brain responses during naturalistic interactions with parents. Unlike most previous studies, which place the infant in front of a screen and present series of repetitive stimuli, in the Exploration project we allow infants to actively choose what they want to do as their parent engages them in a free play session.
