John E. Richards

Dr. Richards is currently the principal investigator for a research grant from the National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. This grant focuses on the development of sustained attention in infants ranging in ages from two to six months. Dr. Richards is a co-investigator (with Jane Roberts) on a grant to study attention and face processing in infants with neurodevelopmental disorders.

The Infant Development Laboratory is a research facility focused on the development of attention and memory in young infants.  We are part of the Department of Psychology, Institute for Mind and Brain, at the University of South Carolina.

The goal of the MRI study is to examine the role the brain plays in the development of infant attention. We present pictures, movies, or sounds to infants and see if they recognize them and pay attention to them.
