At the Babylab we want to better understand how babies learn and develop, particularly during the first 2 years of life, but also throughout childhood.

We create fun studies that help us discover:

  •  how babies recognise faces

  •  how babies and children learn to pay attention to some things and not others

  •  how they learn to understand what other people do and think

  •  how their language and understanding of the world develops

  •  how do tablets and smartphones impact development


We are also interested in understanding why and how some children develop conditions such as Autism and ADHD - please visit for more information and if you'd like to participate -  REGISTER HERE.
