We are excited to launch our newest ManyBabies experimental project, MB6: Neonatal Imitation!

We hosted a pair of planning workshops in July 2022 to hear from experts about their own research and ideas for the project, and to initiate discussions about what a “best test” of neontatal imitation would look like. Subscribe to the listserv (link below) for future updates!
