Welcome to the Cognitive Development Lab!
Our research investigates the development of attention and memory in early childhood from a developmental cognitive neuroscience perspective. We use multiple research methods to study early development including measures of looking behavior, heart rate, and brain activity. The primary goal of our research program is to increase understanding of infant processing of faces in contrast to non-social stimuli, such as everyday objects and abstract patterns. We seek to describe the developmental trajectories of social and non-social information processing and to identify neural mechanisms contributing to differences in responses to these two classes of stimuli.
We are currently recruiting infants to participate! For more information about our research and current studies, please visit the Research tab. To get involved and contribute to our science check out the Sign Up tab.
